Untitled #1 [Shuttle]
This painting of workers jammed together in a truck shuttling them from one part of the dock to another could apply to a host of other industries as well -- even miners heading to the mine shaft. Note the piles of newspapers serving as seats, another sign of the improvised nature of arrangements.
Oil painting by James Grosso, circa 1955.
