Description

A black and white photo of sleeping tents set up along the riverbank. Water is seen approaching the tents. In the transcription, George Sternberg states that these tents had to be moved because of the rising water level. Glare from the sun is present on the surface of the river in the lower right corner of the photograph. Deciduous trees are directly behind the tents. Tall grasses and other plants are growing beside the tents along the bank. The shadows from the trees are cast over the tents and onto the water as well. Some plants are only somewhat visible, as they are partially submerged by the rising river.

Transcription

At 6 oclock June 27th we were compelled to move our sleeping tents aboard the scow as the water began to creep into them.
