Description

A black and white photo of a scow with a light-colored tent as it floats at the river's edge along with two small boats. Some clouds are visible in the sky. Two flags on poles can be seen on the top of the scow, one at each end of the tent. Four men are visible. One member of the crew appears to be pushing away logs with a pole, but a boat blocks a clear view. It is one of two boats drifting close to the scow. Countless large logs are floating near the scow. Only a small amount of vegetation from the closer bank is visible in the lower left-hand corner. Trees stand on the opposite riverbank. Behind these trees are a barn and large hills or outcroppings. Mountains are seen in the background.
