Inscription: l/l "F. Schafer" in the artist's characteristic block-letter hand. Left edge of initial "F" not visible in image
Verso: In a photograph in a plastic sleeve accompanying the painting, presumably of the verso inscription before lining, "Ev. on Santa Cruz Riv. Cal.", in the artist's characteristic block-letter hand. In a second plastic sleeve, a sticker of Stremmel Galleries, Reno, Nevada.

Site: Unknown. As far as is known, there is no Santa Cruz River anywhere in California. Perhaps the artist has mixed together the names of San Lorenzo Creek and the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Note: The placement of the gallery sticker in a plastic sleeve to preserve it suggests that it was originally attached to the frame or stretcher bars.
