Group with canoes along river

Image of children, three adults, and two dogs with canoes on a beach. Just beyond the beach, a number of cars are parked, some holding canoes, with more people. A police officer is standing on the road. A similar image of this same scene is printed on page 65 of Carter's book "Abundant Rivers," with the caption: "The canoes of these two ancient races rest on the sandy shore of an historic river, the mighty Stalo, as children of the new world share a common happiness, unaware that history lies just beneath the sand at their feet."
