This black and white photographic postcard features a group of men and women picking and packing apples. Apples trees line the left and right with a man on a ladder in the background. Tables are set up in the middle of the field to hold the picked apples. Men and women stand on both sides of the tables to pack apples into wooden boxes. A man stands to the right with a simple machine used to secure the lids to the top of each packed box. The group has stopped working and is facing the camera. Printed text is on the bottom of the card. Handwriting is on the back of the card.
