Rockwellesque

Seems like a scene straight from Norman Rockwell's paintbrush. I wonder if it was just by chance that everyone hudding around the heater for warmth created almost perfect stage blocking for the camera man.

Well, Clem

your job along with the other fellas will be to shovel dirt into the river and create a large dam.

Products

Tin signs on the back wall advertise Thedford's Black Draught (a senna laxative compound) and Wine of Cardui (potash and salt with 20% alcohol, for menstrual relief). Both were products of the Chattanooga Medicine Company, and steady sellers since the 1880s.
