This stereograph features men and women working among a thick stand of pine trees. A man is rolling a barrel up a log ramp onto the bed of a wagon and a woman is bent over scraping the trunk of a tree nearby. Other people are seen a little in the distance scraping trees. The title along the bottom edge indicates that the people are collecting turpentine in North Carolina. The publisher's name is printed on either end of the images. The back of the stereograph identifies the location as being near Pinehurst, North Carolina and provides some history and information about the collection and use of turpentine.
