Eskimo Family in Greenland - Postcard, c. 1910s


(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original antique postcard from the 1910s. It shows an Eskimo family in Greenland. 

"AN ESKIMO FAMILY, GREENLAND- This race of people are considered one of the most hardiest of the human family. They get their subsistence from hunting by sea, using for the purpose skin-boats where the sea is open, and dog sledges on the ice. From the skin, blubber and flesh of the seal and cetaceous animals they procure clothes, light and food. They rarely withdraw more than twenty miles from sea-shore. The Eskimo dog is a hardy and powerful animal, in form resembling the shepherd dog. He is used by the natives and explorers as a beast of burden.", reads the description printed on the back. 

The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips.
