Description

This page is from George Sternberg's personal photo album. These black-and-white photos were collected by paleontologist George Sternberg. The top image is two photographs taken side by side to create a panoramic photograph of a rugged landscape of outcroppings. On the left, Sternberg drew a small arrow pointing to where the team is in the distance. The right shows a dirt road that leads toward the river in the background. The bottom image shows the team having lunch at the quarry. Three men are eating at the makeshift table at the entrance of the excavation site. Two horses are below them, eating a hay bale. The other two horses are at the right side of the photo, also eating a hay bale. Underneath each of these photos is an inscription written by Sternberg.
