James Haugabrook Jr. was the first person to identify this 1976 photo of Jerry Beard working at Florida Power's Wildwood Warehouse in Wildwood, Fla. "He is adjusting this pole pile so that he can sort that pole out to be picked up by a crane." Other contributions came in from eagle-eyed readers Charlotte Adkins, Lori Allen, Don Seijas and Brant Cannon.
