A black and white photograph of a sternwheeler identified as the "Hattie Bell", at Rooster Rock on the Columbia River. The ship lies placidly on still water, and the details of its paddlewheel, two lifeboats, the cabin and decks can all be clearly seen. In the foreground, trees or bushes frame the view; in the background the impressive shape of Rooster Rock rises above the water on the left of the picture. The rounded hill to the right is heavily wooded with conifers. High-water marks can be seen at the base of Rooster Rock.
