Beneath this sepia print are the words: 'Thameniemost and youngest coona, in her snow igloo.' The photograph shows an Inuit man, presumably Themoiniemost, standing beside an igloo. His hands are in his jacket pocket, he has a hair band on and there is a pipe in his mouth. The igloo is to his right, with a young woman looking out of the opening. She is smiling. The term 'coona' is a derogatory manner of referring to a woman.
