Description

An outer row of an orange orchard. White ladders with wheels at the bottom are secured to the ground with white wires as men stand on them, collecting oranges. They are at various heights, dressed in a variety of colors, but most, if not all, appear to be looking at the camera. On the ground is a cart loaded with crates of oranges. One man sits on the cart, behind a white two-horse team, and another two stand at the side of the cart. All three are looking into the camera. Next to the cart is a brown horse, hitched to an apparently empty cart.
