That table thing must be where they are sorting them. They wouldn't wish to put a "bad apple in a barrel." Wonder where the barrels would be shipped to. We can only assume this is an orchard in the valley, since apparently there is no notification of who and where.

Definitely brings to mind ....one bad apple spoils the whole barrel.
I looked up the history of that saying.
Chaucer, in the late 1300's, in his Canterbury Tales, wrote something that translates like this.
"About an old proverb, the words that say:
“A rotten apple‘s better thrown away
Before it spoils the barrel.” That is true
When dealing with a bad apprentice too."
Which means it was a proverb even before Chaucer's time. I venture a guess that only in the last century has our society moved away from the knowledge that one bad apple can spoil an entire barrel of apples.
This photo really is history.

To answer Gladys' question about "who" and "where": the man on the left has appeared in two images previously:
He was identified as possibly a brother of Edmund Gehrig.
