This is a tobacco sale in progress. The auctioneer is in front and the buyers man behind him on ether side of the row. The 6th man on the left side is the ticket marker. He watches who was the highest bidder for a pile of tobacco and marks that information along with the price they payed on the ticket that is placed on each pile.
