Donated by: Donald A. Eaton

Description

A work crew of about 35 men seated on a hill of boulders. Looking in various directions, mostly looking at the camera. Most men are clean shaven, but a few have mustaches and one man in the front center has a full beard. Library records indicate that about half of the crew consists of Americans and the other half are Mexicans and that the cook is a Chinese man standing in front. Alex C. Eaton is indicated in the photo as the man with a "big hat and pipe at the Chinese cook's right elbow" who is presumably the father of Donald A. Eaton, donor.
