Caption by Homer Yasui: "Michi, Shu and Roku, standing on a cracked, dried up lake bed. Michi is holding a fishing pole, and it looks like Roku is holding a gun as tall as he. Shu is in the middle What looks like a dried lake bed actually was the remains of a big stagnant slough, which the Columbia River left behind when the water receded following the spring runoffs. That area was once called Button's Slough...The Hood River-White Salmon Bridge is visible in the background."

c. 1926
