On 25 June 1885 The Press Newspaper (Woodstock, NB, Canada) reported:
Messrs. W. A. Mooers and W. L. Alterton, Photographers, desirous to secure views of the magnificent scenery of the river St. John between Woodstock and the City of St. John, recently fitted up a strong raft, on which they placed a " Photographic Studio " sufficiently large to allow them ample room for their instruments and work-room, and also to furnish them with comfortable cooking and sleeping apartments. They expect to spend several weeks on the cruise. Preparations had been made to start from Upper Woodstock last Monday morning, but owing to the heavy winds that have prevailed this week their craft is still at anchor.
