People in postholes

Posted by Picasa
Corky Gregory sent me this picture which she says is "Phil giving some people a site tour" during the 1978 season. I think the legs on the right may indeed belong to PWD. Corky also writes that she will not tell me "what John Howell said to me when he realised I was photographing his butt!". But there are other mystifying aspects to this pleasing scene. What is the dog doing on the cutting? How did Dr Howell get his arm stuck in the posthole? And what is the purpose of the mallet? Update:Dr Phillpotts provides a clue at the end of this post.
