A black and white photograph showing four men working together to load sections of a specimen out of the breaks and into a wooden horse-drawn wagon. The men are loading the specimen onto a wagon using a triplex pulley system. The triplex is set up around the wagon. The triplex consists of three wooden poles 12' to 15' high, lashed together at the top with the base of each pole on the ground straddling the wagon. The men use a pulley system attached to the triplex to load rocks into the wagon. The men wear narrow-brimmed hats, long pants, and long-sleeved shirts. They stand along a ridge. A bucket and other tools are on the ground nearby. A dark horse covered with a blanket stands at the front of the wagon, and a light-colored horse stands just behind it. A third horse (dark) wanders nearby just below the ridge. According to the book written by Charles H. Sternberg - "Hunting Dinosaurs in the Bad Lands of the Red Deer River, Alberta, Canada" - the specimen they are working with is the carnivore discovered by Charlie (Charles M.) Sternberg.
