- Scope and content:
This album, comprised of 90 pages on which 354 photographs are mounted, consists of various subject matters, such as whaling in Pangnirtung, R.S. Finnie filming movies, portraits of Inuit "types" from Pond Inlet, Natives of Greenland, musk-oxen on Devon Island, and R.C.M.P. posts in the North. The common thread is that all of the photographs are taken while travelling with the S.S. Beothic on the Eastern Arctic Patrol. Photos by G.P. MacKenzie (1928, 1930), L.D. Morin (1928, 1929), R.S.
