Photograph is number two in a series of photographs showing the manufacture of cement pipe at the Gardner Pipe Works, demonstrating a pipe molding process utilizing a mold patented by H.H. Gardener. Note attached with photos reads, "Shows machine set up and men just starting to make pipe. One man feeds while the other tamps."
