A black-and-white photograph showing a man sitting upon a scow (wide-beamed sailing dinghy / raft) in the water of a river. A flagpole is seen at each end of the scow, and a dinghy is tethered to the scow just off the shoreline. Lumber and fallen branches can be seen on the shoreline as well as trees. A railroad bridge is in the background and further in the background is another bridge. A building can be seen in the far background where the second bridge leads. It is a large rectangular prism building about half the height of one of the telegraph wires poles. The telegraph wires surround the building. A hand-written inscription in cursive is beneath the photo.
