Description

This page is from George Sternberg's personal photo album. These black-and-white photos were collected by paleontologist George Sternberg. The top image is a photograph of an island splitting the Red Deer River in Alberta, Canada. The island has trees along the edges and sagebrush scattered in the middle. Both sides of the river are lined with badlands. The bottom image is a photograph of Sternberg's tented barge, which was tethered to the bank of the Red Deer River. Two men are at this camp, one standing on the left side of the camp, and the other on the right. A rowboat is tied to the right side of the camp, and a third man is in the boat holding an oar. Underneath each of these photos is an inscription written by George Sternberg.
