Ice Bunker Reefers

Ice Bunker Reefers

Jack Delano did more than just photograph trains, his main assignment was to photograph people at work and their working conditions. Here men are adding ice to the bunkers at each end of a refrigerator car (reefer). You would think this would be cool work. However when the temperature soars to over 100 degrees, the work can become grueling.
