AMNH scow Mary Jane, 1911

Another picture of the scow Mary Jane, 1911. The expedition cook, Fred Saunders stands on the left, holding a black kitten. Barnum Brown stands to his left. The others are the local Postill family, descendents of whom still reside upstream from the Drumheller area today. Note how a long plank is needed to traverse the mud flats along the river. Also note that from 1911 on the tent was raised up from the deck thereby giving more room inside.

  1. I'd say the scow's design was pretty ingenious for it's purpose. :) Neat Picture! :)
