Scene of four men working to erect power lines at Sydney Graving. In the background below a group of work around a crane. The four men in the foreground are exerting a large amount of energy though pulling on a thick rope. The artist utilises social realism as a means to facilitate the viewer's appreciation of the co-operation between workers and heroism of their actions.
