Loading rock at Wolfe County, Kentucky. Seven young men in overalls or jeans and white shirts surround a wheelbarrow and bend to hit rocks with mallets. The rocks are fist sized and light in color. The men are surrounded by a wall of dark boulders.
A man and woman are seated on a shale rock landscape. There is a large chain coming from the upper left of the photo and sweeping through off to the right side. The woman appears to be sitting on the chain.
