The section crew that speeds along the line in a motor car won't envy these worthies of a century ago. It took a lot of muscle to roll that "stem-winder," and apparently called for a strong arm on the push-pole when a trailer was used. The grim expressions probably result from the necessity for standing immobile for minutes while the photo was being taken.
