Portraits in history, part 1

Here is another priceless photo from the Eagle Plains Hotel. It shows the Gwich’in Louis Cardinal and his family overlooking the Mackenzie river in 1929. 

Today, the ferry which crosses the river is named after him.

Notice the traditional furs which everyone is wearing in this shot.
