Description

This page is from George Sternberg's personal photo album. Four black-and-white photographs within a page of a photo album. Each shows a river and has inscriptions at the bottom. Men can be seen in each picture either sitting on the shoreline, sitting in the scow (wide-beamed sailing dinghy / raft), or packing wooden crates. Two photos are taken from a viewpoint with the shoreline on the right side of the people in the photograph. The other two photographs show the shoreline on the left side of the people in the photograph as well as two bridges in the background. One of these bridges is a railroad bridge. A hand-written inscription in cursive is beneath the photo.
