Approximate Date



This page is from George Sternberg's personal photo album. This page contains a collection of four photos taken by George Sternberg, a noted paleontologist. These photos depict both close-up and distance shots of an outcrop, a river, and the foliage surrounding the river. Two of these photos are of the same rippling marks in a slab of rock that Sternberg and his team have uncovered. One of the pictures of the ripple marks is closer in view and from a different angle. These black-and-white shots each have a handwritten inscription from Sternberg detailing some of the objects and scenery in the photograph. Sternberg was joined in taking these photos by a team; they made camp on the riverbed while looking for fossils and exploring the quarry.
