Settlement of Lievely, Disko Island, Greenland
Lantern slide made of glass

Museum number 1972-351-98

This lantern slide shows the Danish settlement of Lievely on Disko Island at Greenland. The photograph was probably taken from the deck of a whaling ship. There is a stretch of calm water in the foreground, with the houses clustered on a rising, snow covered ground in the centre of the picture. On the left, a church spire can be seen protruding above the slope of a hill.
