Description: This photograph shows many people standing near a group of covered wagons parked in the right of the photograph. In the front, there are several men, some wearing suits and others loose clothing and cowboy hats; some of the men are wearing aprons. There is a hose leading from the back of the wagon in the front of the photograph. To the right, one of the wagons has a wooden platform extended like a table and one man seems to be eating off of it and there is a barrel in the middle of the photograph. In the background, there are more people, many under a large tree at the left. A handwritten note on the back of the photograph says, "About 1905-10. Chuck boxes. Water was brought for drinking and cooking from a near-by ranch. Siphoned out from barrels in wagon. One of the cooks eating a rib."
