Description
Photograph of a lot filled with cargo-loaded trucks, ca.1930. Facing left and right are multiple trucks lined up next to one another in an outdoor lot. Stacked in each truck's flat-bed are boxes, some of which read "Remington Typewriter". In the foreground, a man wearing a button-down collared shirt and a cap is visible looking towards the viewer. He is in the back of one of the trucks and appears to be moving one of the crates. A second man, wearing a dark suit and hat, is visible standing in the bed of another truck while looking down at a clipboard. Buildings, power lines, and more workers are visible in the background.
