Garbage: The Science and Problem of What We Throw Away #4047

#4047
On the right, some workers are taking some acetylene bottles to the ship (to feed the blowtorches). On the left, a row of men is pulling a thick steel-made cable that will be used to get some boat parts closer to the beach with a winch. They have to go there through low tide. It is common that they get some wounds with pieces of steel or glass present in the mud.
