Time Period

January, 1934


Image is a winter scene with snow on the ground and several men working to remove large steel bridge girders by hand from a railroad flat car. It appears that two large logs are laid at an angle to form a slide from the side of the rail car to large wooden beams on the ground. One steel beam is at the bottom of the slide with another at the top ready to come down. Other beams are visible on the car. No tools or moving devises are in evidence except that one man holds a long-handled peavy.
