Scope and content

Handwritten annotation on verso reads: "In the foreground is the boiling tanks for the ooligans. A fire is lit in the tanks then big stones heated red hot. When the water becomes boiling hot then the ooligans are shoveled in & left over night. During the night, skin & bones settle to bottom & fat comes to the top. Then with a board the width of the tank, pails hung on a spout at the end of the tank, and fat is scraped into the pails and used for butter. In the background is the smokehouse."
