Automobile Ferry After the Flood

Description

Richard Wyatt going across the levee North of Henrietta on a ferry pulled by horses to his farm where Mrs. Wyatt was. This was taken a foot of hill just out of town. The fringe of trees in the distance marks the slough. This was taken after the water had receded considerably, as you can see by the drift on the fence at left.
