Postcard messageWillows Sask May 4 Dear Cousin This is a poto [sic] of my nearest town. I am working here now in a clay mine. I bought a team and getting $6.00 a day. I like it fine we haul this clay 2 miles from the mine to the car. They ship this clay to Medicine Hat, to manufacture it into all kinds of crockery. Its a great job. I am feeling fine now. Geo.
Scope and contentA group of men and horses standing in front of a building under construction. It isn't clear whether they are construction workers, or workers in the nearby clay mines.
