Description

A black and white photograph of two men wrapping a fossil inside a quarry on an outcropping. The man on the left side is wearing a fedora hat with a long-sleeved white shirt and light-colored pants. He is sitting in front of a wrapped portion of the fossil. The second man is on the other side of the specimen, and he is also dressed in a fedora hat, but he is wearing suspenders and a dark-colored, long-sleeved shirt with his sleeves rolled up. He has a stretched-out piece of burlap in his left hand and a knife in his right hand. The limestone quarry wall with a wooden pole leaning against it is visible behind the two men. In the lower left foreground is a crumpled tarp.
