Clam diggers at work in Pine Point ca. 1933. Notice the wooden clam basket. It allowed the digger to wash the sand and mud from the clams. Whereas clams were either sold by the measure (peck, bushel,etc.) or by actual weight, the dealer or person buying the clams did not want excessive volume or weight.
