Description:
This image shows seven men working at a rock crushing plant. The large machine on the left side of the picture probably functions as a sorter for obtaining different grain sizes. The sorter seems to be run by a steam engine with belts (seen on the right side of the photo). The landscape around the plants is forested, with bushes in the foreground. In the background is the highwall of a gravel pit.
