This sepia print shows a stretch of coast line in the Arctic, possibly in Canada's northern Baffin Island. The photograph is faded, but shows a stretch of water in the foreground, with a prominent headland stretching from right to left, with the end near the left side of the picture. The land is of rocky hills, streaked with snow in places, and has a reflection in the water.
