Clipping on the back, December 9, 1942-- "No one seems to be doing much of anything in this picture of the Moore Dry Dock slab shop, but that's because the cameraman arrived just after the boys had finished bending a white-hot frame and missed the fun. The rotund individual in the center background is Mattea Andreatti, 248-pound leaderman, veteran of 24 years in this type of work." Photo shows a group of young men standing around a piece of bent metal. Andreatti is in the middle of the group, he is obviously older than the other men. All the men are holding sledge hammers and the man on the right is holding his over his head like he is about to swing.
