Photograph of a view of Wood's Crossing and Whiskey Hill, ca.1900 (ca.1930?). In center a small puddle surrounded by earth and rock is all that occupies the riverbed. The farthest riverbank leads to an automobile parked to the left in front of a large tree. To the right of the automobile Whiskey Hill is sandy and littered with large rocks in the center, but covered with thick woods on the right-hand side, further down the bank of the dried riverbed. Photo file card reads "It was here in 1848 that the first gold was found in Tuolumne County. Saloons and shanties soon sprung up on the hill -- but all is deserted now".
