Have you ever run across a historical photo and wondered what was going on in the picture? Since the advent of photography, fleeting moments mundane to earth-shattering have been captured on film for posterity to see. So many of these photos get lost, discarded or shunned away and over generations the oral story that goes along with them disappears.

This gem of an old photo was sent to us by a Guest but the big question is, why all the wheelbarrows? It must have been an important project based on the size of the work crew. Imagine the organization for the era of this photo that was required to get all local hands to report to one location at one time with their wheelbarrow in tow. Do you know the mystery? If so, leave a comment and let us know.

What do you think is happening in this picture? Looking closer at the men pushing the wheelbarrows, they appear to be blindfolded. Could it be some sort of a game or contest? For now, it's a mystery!
