A black and white photo of C. W. Gilmore working on getting a fossil ready for transport. He is sitting on the rocky ground in a hole that has been dug out, and he is using a tool to work on the fossil. There are other fossils in the hole; a skull and a leg bone are in the foreground. A bucket sits next to Gilmore and a can with a paintbrush is across from it. A smoking pipe and tobacco are to the right of the can. A box that reads "Coffee" and some bags are on the other side of the hole opposite Gilmore. The land in the background rises to a small hill. Grasses and shrubs can be seen on that ground.
