Photograph of a greased pig contest for the lumberjacks at Camp One of the Morgan Lumber and Cedar Company near Foster City during the teens. The lumberjack at the far right attempting to capture the pig may have been named DuFresne. The four men in the background are standing on the backs of some of the camp's horses to get a better view of the fun.
