Early in June 1895

zoomable artifact image here


Gelatin print; mounted; Inuit man and children. Reverse side of photograph reads: "Kog-mul-luk man and children/ Early in June 1895." The mount is dark brown with gold edges. This photo was possibly taken by Captain 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.
