While this scene takes place on Manette Peninsula, groups of clam diggers could be found in this era on many beaches in Oregon and Washington. An unknown photographer has captured one family's activity in a detailed photo that shows the details of their work.

While clearly posed, detail view 1 shows a man handing his find to a boy, probably his son, to place in his wooden bucket. Detail view 2 shows three other children learning the process from their elders.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
