Description
The shoreline in the background is littered with fallen trees. The Scow is on the Ottawa River, tied to the dock, with 11 men posing for the photograph.
Notes
Due to the trees that are cut along the bank of the river, this photograph was likely taken at the end of the 1940s before the water levels of the Ottawa River were raised by the dam at Rapides-des-Joachims.
