Proud of a Job well done!

Quite a rare photograph of grave diggers by a recently dug grave. Is the more smartly dressed figure on the right the foreman? It. is interesting to see their tools - the spades, a long-handled shovel and the besom brush that was used to brush the soil from the grass around the grave.

Interesting subject aside, I love the beat of this sepia.
The ice cream curls of the dirt, the three men looking like a family business...the pattern of the trees in the back ground.... -J
