General NotesA Native American man poses inside a large warehouse of Pendleton woolen blankets. The background is floor-to-ceiling shelves of folded Native American style Pendleton woolen blankets; some blankets are draped in between the rows to form a display. The subject is seated in front of them, his torso wrapped in a blanket which covers his left arm and shoulder; his right arm and shoulder are bare. His long braids are wrapped decoratively in cloth that is wound over the hair and he wears large, round earrings. His leggings and moccasins appear to be leather or buckskin, and are painted decoratively.
TCI NotesAn interior photograph of a tribal man dressed in regalia and wrapped in a Pendleton Blanket. He has been identified as Ed Chapman. He is sitting on a Pendleton Blanket that is covering a chair or stool. He is sitting in front of big shelves of Pendleton Blankets, presumably in the showroom of the Pendleton Woolen Mills. Some of the shelves are full of Pendleton Blankets, while others have only a few blankets. Blankets have been hung by their corners from the top of the shelves. There are a couple of tables in the background.
