Description

Mounted gelatin print of seven Inuit children.  Back side of photograph reads:  "Kog-mul-luk children / Apr. 1895."  Mount is dark brown with gold edges.  Photograph possibly taken by Capt. John A. Cook.

Please note, we are unsure of the meaning of the term "Kog-mul-luk," which is used here in quotations, taken directly from the handwritten primary source material. It is likely a designation for a specific indigenous group and might refer to the region they inhabited.
