Annotation

Black and white photograph of a large group of prisoners using iron rods, chisels, and sledge hammers to break boulders in the construction basin at the Belomorkanal labor camp during spring 1932. The 141-mile canal was built almost exclusively with manual labor and tools like those in this photograph.
