This sepie print shows the settlement of Upernavik on midnight 01 June 1876. Upernavik is a small town in north western Greenland, well north of the Arctic Circle, so night in summer is as light as day. The foreground of the picture shows the foremast of the ship from which the photograph was taken, as well as a boat hanging from its davits. In the background are snow-streaked hills.
