An interesting photo, taken on August 4th, 1915, of a group of people, including some native reindeer herders (the four at left, which includes "chief herder Tautak"), one of the famous "Lomen Brothers" of the Lomen Photography Studio (G.J. Lomen...the man in the duster), future Alaska Governor George A. Parks (a Republican who served from 1925 through 1933...fourth from right), and Jafet Lindeberg (second from right)...and one black Siberian husky (this is not Balto, incidentally).
