Inuit mother and child on board S.S. Eclipse, 1900
Lantern slide made of glass

Museum number 1972-351-105

This lantern slide shows an Inuit mother and child on the deck of a whaling ship, probably S.S. 'Eclipse' around 1900. The mother has the child on her back and is smiling to the camera. She is sitting on what appears to be a spar against the rail of the ship, while there is a whaleboat hanging behind her.
