You can see just how close the excavation was to the river, seen as the white space in the upper portion of the photo. In the late October sun, some of the women have removed sweaters, overshirts, and hats, and laid them on top of tree stumps. The woman shielding her eyes is watching a tug boat go down the river towards Savannah.
