Description

A black-and-white photograph showing three men on a scow (wide-beam sailing dinghy / raft) holding three wooden crates on a river. A flagpole rises on each end of the scow. One flag is a solid color and the other flag (based off evidence from other pictures) is the Union Jack. A dinghy is seen in front, and the other is behind the scow, also with a flagpole on each end. A man in front is sitting while two men are standing behind stacked wooden crates. Two bridges are in the background, as well as a building and several telegraph poles. A shoreline is covered in fallen branches, and trees line the shore. A hand-written inscription in cursive is beneath the photo.
