Description

This page is from George Sternberg's personal photo album. These black-and-white photos were collected by paleontologist George Sternberg. All three of them show a similar scene: Sternberg's crew driving a team of four horses away from the excavation site up the steep winding path. The horses are pulling a wagon of rocks and fossil specimens, on which one man is standing to drive the horses. In the top left photograph, there is a man pushing the wagon from behind. In the bottom left photograph, the team is resting, so the man behind the back wheel of the wagon is no longer pushing but is standing, and a third man is standing at the front next to the horses. In the right photograph, the man on the wagon is once again driving the horses, and the man next to the horses is running alongside them. The man from behind the wagon is not visible in this photograph. Each photograph has an inscription underneath written by George Sternberg.
