Jim was Virgil's neighbor on the adjacent homestead. In this picture they are transporting their clams from the beach to the Sterling Highway. It was a tedious journey - up the cliff and over the snow. But after a winter of a moose diet the fresh clams were a treat. Jim is pulling and Virgil is pushing a small sled with a wooden box tied on securely. The clams are in a burlap sack within the box. Clam shovels are seen.
