From a clipping glued to the back of the image, "Instructor Mike Wilson and student Fred Mangrum, 12, launch boat." Under this is a snippet from an article, "Running, jogging and walking around Lake Merritt is very in these days. But in the center of it all, through the city's Learn-to-Sail program, some 700 men, women and children are getting their sea legs under them, too." Under this, glued upside-down, is a piece of paper which has the following typed on it, "INTO THE DRINK -- Instructor Mike Wilson and pupil Mike Wilson and pupil Fred Mangrum, 12, slide a Sunfish boat into Lake Merritt as part of Oakland's Learn to Sail program."
