Shippensburg photographer C.A. Goodhart took this image of a Cumberland Valley Railroad section gang sometime in the 1890s at Oakville, west of Newville. The cart in the foreground carries the workers’ lunch pails. The men were paid $1.20 for a 10-hour day — and they worked six days a week. Obesity does not appear to have been a problem with these fellows. The bearded man in the middle is said to have been “Foreman Miller,” but no one else is identified.
