Description

Three workers at the Arnavon soap factory, Marseille, are moving a barrel of olive oil up an inclined plane made of two planks. The oil contained in the barrels will be poured on lye, before being heated in the cauldron.

The caption reads in the original French: Ouvriers chargeant une cuite, c’est-à-dire versant l’huile dans la chaudière.
