'Mrs. Connibear holding unborn moose teabag made by Eskimos'
Mrs. Conibear, trader and entrepreneur, posing in front of her Fort Smith home with a bag made from a moose fetus' hide. 'Tea bags' like this were used much like a market bag. This magic lantern slide has been hand-coloured, and is also available as a photo print in Miriam Green Ellis' photo album.
