Title taken from caption. "9201 -- This stereograph shows the kind of dress worn by men and women in Alaska during the summer. During the winter they adopt the dress of the natives. This consists of high boots made of seal or walrus skin, trousers of fawn or marmot, and an upper garment with a hood, which is also made of marmot, and is trimmed with long fur to protect the face."
