Commentary by SEC: 
This photo was taken in May 1887 and shows Sonoma Creek in the late spring. It was a drought year, with only 20.75 inches falling in the water year, and only 3.5" falling in March and April, with a trace in May. Several people are fishing, probably for trout. Bank erosion visible and Sonoma Mountain in the distance.
