A black-and-white photo of a man working on the bottom of a scow. The scow is made of wood, and the top is coated in the pitch that the man is applying. Several wood planks and debris are on the ground in front of the scow. Two planks of wood are leaning against a wooden post behind the scow. Behind the man is a river. In the background, a metal bridge is visible over the river. Underneath the photo is an inscription written by Sternberg that says, â€œ35082 16. Applying pitch to bottom of scow. R. -27, T-38, S.-17.â€
