Title on EnvelopeCrew digging Hinkle irrigation canal w/ horses and hand-scrapers, near Pendleton, 1907
General NotesSix men and eight horses are seen in the process of clearing land to form an irrigation canal or drainage ditch. One man sits on the hillside; the other men stand facing the camera. All the men are dressed in European-American clothing and all wear hats or caps. Two of the men are dressed in clothing that seems to be some sort of uniform, with square caps; they are also wearing high boots. The other men have wide-brimmed hats and they are wearing work clothes. The horses are hitched to some kind of apparatus that is not clearly visible.
TCI NotesAn outside photograph of non-tribal men who are working with horses and mules in an irrigation canal. There are six men working with the horses and mules. They are pulling scrapers to form the canal.
