Sheep ranch near Sumpter, OR, ca 1930—1945? Large flock of sheep. Bridge probably crosses Powder River which looks full of sediment, not clear, which would mean the upstream dredges were still operating. Includes cabin on right, plus sheepherder's wagon and horse on right, dog in upper left toward middle, and sheepherder mounted with another dog on his lap on the saddle. Stumps across the river show some indication of logging. Donor unknown. Scanned at 300 dpi in both sepia tone and gray scale.
