Description: 
Street in Prieska showing pepper trees and eucalyptus. The vegetation here seems very dry and sparse. Only with irrigation is anything produced - except the street trees - peppers and an occasional eucalyptus. It is only after rains that the native vegetation becomes active. There is little or no alkali along the river - and the whole country seems remarkably free from it. [Shantz travel journal, Sep. 16, 1919]
