Description

This page is from George Sternberg's personal photo album. These black-and-white photos were collected by George Sternberg. The photo on the left shows a bull snake slithering up a steep incline toward a grassier area. The top right photograph is a close image of Sternberg's tents and equipment on a scow tethered to a riverbank. In the bottom right photo, the scow has pushed off toward the river, and the men onboard are hard at work with the paddles to maneuver the craft. Underneath each of these images is an inscription written by George Sternberg.
