Title:
Tug of War (3)
Date:
08/10/1935
Description:
A game of tug of war by the employees at the Clambake of the Perth Amboy Cable Company. The scene shows the game in progress from the side. You can see the crowd of spectators standing almost over the men.

Perth Amboy Cable Company is most likely referring to the General Cable Corporation, which had bought the Standard Underground Cable Company (and its Perth Amboy works) in 1927.

The clambake was held at Danish Grove near Metuchen, N.J.
