View of mountains on coast of Davis Straits, Greenland
Lantern slide made of glass

Museum number 1972-351-83

This lantern slide was probably taken from the deck of a Dundee whaling ship. It shows a view of the Greenland mountains on the western, Davis Straits, side of the country. The hills rise steeply from fields of ice, but are level-topped, as if sheared by ice.
