Ice Cutting: Preliminary Study [1] of 8, [between 1949 and 1951]

 Item — Box: Oversize 1, Folder: 4
Call Number: MSS 7, Series II

Scope and Contents

Various large sketches of tools. Large sketch in the upper left is difficult to identify. Sketches at the bottom and to the right look similar; one is labeled "snow scraper." It is different from the scraper engraved in the foreground of the final image, in that this one has two short handles and its teeth seem to form a diamond-shape.
