Description

Image shows freight cars at the Oxnard Sugar Factory. The first car seems to be empty while the second car is off-loading beets into a large container. There is a person standing to the right of the tracks on top of or near the container that looks to be pulling a line to the freight car. Beets can be seen falling into the container with a cloud of dirt rising up. Trees and utility poles can be seen in the background.
