Lievely, Disko Island, Greenland
Lantern slide made of glass

Museum number 1972-351

This lantern slide shows a view of the settlement of Lievely, on the island of Disko. This island is on the west coast of Greenland and was a favoured place for Dundee whaling ships to stop before they sailed to the whaling grounds further west. The picture shows a stretch of calm water in the foreground, with the settlement on higher ground beyond. There is a fairly large, steep-roofed building with white walls and five windows in the centre of the picture, with other buildings clustered to the right. Ragged hills rise beyond, patched with snow.
