Description Of Content:
Four women paddling in a narrow boat or skiff on Lake Jubilee. The boat has long tappered bow and stern similar to a canoe, but is broader in the middle with the women seated two abreast, facing forward. The front pair are holding a long double-bladed paddle similar to the type used with kyaks though somewhat cruder in design. The rear pair appear to be holding a long pole similar to the type that might be used for punting.

This appears to be the wrong picture. I am interested in the Jubilee Lake photo that should be there. Do you have it please? Thanks
