Pile of Oyster Shells

Three men stand atop—and are dwarfed by—huge piles of oyster shells after the meat inside had been shucked and packed by J.S. Darling & Son Oyster Packers in Hampton. The seafood plant is visible at left, and a workboat sits in the water in the foreground. The photograph was taken by Cheyne Studio, a local photographic studio.
