Description
Laborers carry sand from A-frame supported baskets across a narrow gangway off a boat. One laborer is dumping his sand in this photo. In addition to recording the war effort, Williams traveled to small towns, villages, and farms to capture the spirit, culture, and individual personalities of the Korean people, whose lives were dramatically affected by the war.
