Informal carte-de-visite photographs probably created by James L. Cotter documenting Inuit people and dwellings probably in the vicinity of the eastern coast of Hudson Bay or Belcher Islands, Canada, ca. 1867-1870. Images documenting the traditional costume of the Inuits include an informal portrait of a girl, in addition to group portraits of three women and two men and another group portrait of over sixty children, women, and men. Images documenting Inuit dwellings include a group of men and women in front of three igloos and sitting on top of a sled, two igloos without people, and a structure similar to a tipi with a wooden door.
