Photo NumberPH001_1487
NotesThree individuals pose with a double-ended sleigh in a snow-filled landscape. Two people sit in the sleigh. The individual on the left wears a hat with fur trim, and a long-sleeved fur coat with a high neck collar. The woman sitting on the other end of the sleigh wears a white fur-trimmed hat and large fur coat. A man wearing a fur-trimmed hat, long-sleeved button-up coat and gloves stands behind the sleigh. With his right hand he grasps a rope. The sleigh is wooden-framed with a sturdy material, possibly canvas, which is secured to the sleigh with rope. Unidentified objects, possibly supplies, sit on the left end of the sleigh and are secured in place with rope. A figure in motion is blurred in the background. Only snow is visible in the landscape.
