Four cement workers at Sydney graving dock carrying out heavy manual work working using equipment such as shovels. Cranes and ladders and building structures fill the background. McClintock's focus on the immensity of these structures is demonstrative of the scale of the project being undertaken. The artist also utilises social realism as a means to facilitate the viewer's appreciation of the co-operation between workers.
