A black-and-white photograph of a man standing in the water next to a small white motorboat. Another man is on top of the white wooden wagon that has been dismantled and loaded onto the boat. The men were getting the wagon and themselves ready to be transported across the swollen stream due to the high raising water. The riverbank at the bottom of the photo is muddy. In the upper right portion of the photo stands three white tents along a tree line that runs across the length of the photo. The tents and the tree line are on the opposite shoreline across the river.
