Two executives standing in a parking lot behind the Gisholt Machine Company. The  man on the left is standing with his hands behind his back. The man on the right, identified as Theodore Bare (of Gisholt Main Office Estimating), is wearing a three-piece suit and holding a snapping turtle by its tail. Bare reportedly caught the turtle at his cottage in Hayward, and it "weighed 28 pounds and provided 10 pounds of good meat for the freezer). Automobiles are parked behind them, and the side of a factory building is in the far background.
