Seaman setting traps in the ice
Lantern slide of glass with metal frame

Donated by Mr Robert Ferguson in 1975
Museum number 1975-2-4-62

This lantern slide shows a member of a Dundee whaling crew laying traps in the ice. The man is on his knees, leaning on a slight lump in the ice and is covering the trap. He has a beard and a small fur hat but apart from that seems to be wearing ordinary nautical clothing.
