Makah Whalers Landing Whale at Neah Bay

Black and white glass plate negative image of 6 Makah whalers in a canoe, which is tipping on its side towards a partially visible whale carcass next to the canoe, close to the shore at Neah Bay, Clallam County, WA, ca. 1910. Several seal skin floats are supporting the carcass. A line extends from the whale or canoe towards image left edge. Probably the shore is visible above lower image edge. Possibly 5 canoes are visible in the distance. Land is visible in distance at image right edge and in image center. Asahel Curtis
