Pallet after pallet of bricks, stacked on top of one another. Bricks, some perforated, some not. A boystanding on the ground in the midst of jillions of bricks, is shooting bricks with his slingshot. The handwritten notation on the back of the photo tells us "Connie Norden, son of C. E. Norden Brick Construction Co Berkeley, Calif came to this Richmond Brickyard with hsi father. While his father shopped for bricks, Connie used his slingshot to shoot a few bricks."
