The bottom left photograph shows two men leading a horse out of a tent on their scow or barge. The bottom middle photograph shows the same scene, with the horse headed out of the water and onto the riverbank. The bottom right photo shows a group of spruce trees just beyond the river. Each of these photographs has an inscription underneath written by Sternberg.
