Photograph of a man standing on shore next to a small wooden ferry boat moored along the Colorado River in one of the Mojave canyons, California, 1900-1950. It is a flat boat containing several crates and full sacks. The oars stick up in the oarlocks on both sides. The near shore is dried cracked mud. On the far shore, brush and small trees can be seen. A sandbar(?) is visible in the placid water just off the opposite shore. Rough rocky hills are visible in the background. One of the hills was the site of the killing of a prospector by a Chemehuevi Indian.
