Steam Wheeler Cook with Fresh Fish
'Lake Trout caught near Great Slave Lake'
"Doc" Griffin, a steam wheeler cook, posing with fresh fish (though not trout as the caption suggests). According to Miriam Green Ellis, he had started a medical degree and left it for the river life. This magic lantern slide has been hand-coloured, and is also available as a photo print in Miriam Green Ellis' photo album.
