September 30, 1942. Photo No. 14. This view of Staniford Road construction shows the Sheep's foot roller being employed for compacting the moist pavement mixture after it has been thoroughly mixed. This type of roller compacts the pavement from the bottom up to the surface and prevents areas of insufficient compaction. The business name of Holcomb Trucking Co. seen on the back of the tractor.

It's an appropriate means of compaction in case of highway. I think it is quite useful. It can solve the compaction in nice way.
