Bundled Up

This batch of photos is trying to win an award for “Most Poorly Captioned Pictures.”  Caption reads: Various unidentified pictures of people in Alaska. Folder ACC 310 2, and that’s supposed to be sufficient for 8 photos.  I don’t know who the people are either, and after 90+ years, I’m not sure where in Alaska these photos are from, but I thought this woman was pretty, and it was an interesting contrast to many of the more proto-masculine images we post. As a public service announcement on behalf of historians and archivists everywhere: please label your photos.
