Swimming at the Creek
If you grew up in a small rural town like I did, you'd know that a creek lies somewhere betwixt and between a river and a brook. Of course, how that's perceived varies with where you're from. In western Pennsylvania, where I'm grew up, rivers mean the Allegheny or the Ohio and this stream would fall into the creek category. In Nevada, people would probably see it as a good sized river. In any case, it looks like a good place to cool off on a hot summers day. I used to swim in Roaring Run and Crooked Creek. And sometimes, I'd just wade in Hilty's Hollow.
No names, dates or location on the print. There is a processor's mark, "Fox Tone Print, FOX CO. SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS" That doesn't mean much. Fox was a regional lab with a large mail order business.
