Description

Mounted gelatin print photograph of Inuit couple; on rear: "Kog-mul-luk man and his wife/ Apr. 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.
