Scope and content

View of a scow loaded with provisions and several people passing through rapids of the Grand Canyon. Printed annotation on recto reads: “A scow loaded with provisions passing through the Grand Canyon on it’s way to Fort George.” Handwritten annotation in pencil on recto reads: “Nearly Bumped, Nachaco River” Handwritten annotation in pencil on verso reads: “My address will be Fort George BC. Dear Mrs. Cooper, I am up in the wild part of BC now where men horses and everything get drowned every day, sometimes automobiles get drowned also. This is the way we travel up where I am now. I saw a boat upside down in this Canyon it had a bundle of blankets tied on it and one oar was dancing in the whirlpool. This made my hair stand straight up and down.”
