This is a photograph showing one man driving a team of horses pulling a dirt slip and another man helping with the load. A dirt slip was shaped much like a wheelbarrow only it had an open front end. It would slide along digging into the dirt to get a load. The dirt was dumped by raising up on the handles.

Creator: Steele, F. M. (Francis Marion), 1866-1936
