Road Camp: Pine Creek 1927

I thought these were depression era pictures, but in looking closer at the back they are dated 1927, predating the depression.  The note included identifies my grandfather as to the left of the man with the rolling pin.  I know grandfather took jobs as they were available, including depression era work camps.  In addition to this road, he also worked on the road from Teton Basin to Jackson Hole.  You can see shovels and axes, very basic tools for road building.  I assume the man with the rolling pin is a cook.
