A black-and-white photo of a man steering a motorboat. He is wearing a raincoat and a matching rain hat, and he is looking out at the water and land in front of him. Near the helm is some of the mechanical equipment for the motorboat. A large sack or blanket is draped over the bench. In the background of the photograph, the land surrounding the river is covered with trees. Underneath the photo is an inscription written by Sternberg that says, â€œ35089-16. The man at the wheel was compelled to wear his rain coat [sic] most of the time.€
