Untitled #3  [Forklift Operator]

Another common longshore job, that of the forklift operator. Fortunately this worker is portrayed backing up, so we get a chance to look at his face. Note his white cap, a clue that the scene is from the west coast docks, where white caps were commonly worn.

Unsigned oil painting by James Grosso, circa 1955.
