Summary

Caption from Torch: "A tour behind the scenes at the Smithsonian reveals volunteers doing a variety of unusual jobs. Above, volunteers Elba Olson (second from left) and Ann Tschingas (right) work on a polychrome floor mosaic from a first century B.C. Carthaginian temple with Edith Dietze (left) and Cathy Valentour. The six-by-nine-foot mosaic, which is part of the MNH collection, was severely damaged during moving. Restoration began in June 1976 and took more than 16 months to complete."
