General NotesA collection of items identified as "Lee Moorhouse collection of Indian costumes and artifacts" is grouped on the board-and-batten porch of a house. Flanked by two lattice-work columns, most of the items are baskets with geometric designs, along with a few pieces of pottery, also with geometric designs. Baskets are piled up to half-hide the window, with its four narrow lead-lights, and spill out past the low porch to the ground. In the center back hang two beaded dresses and what looks like part of a cradleboard. A beaded bag hangs on the left column, and baskets hang on the other. In the right back corner of the porch is a strikingly bold geometrically patterned textile, with some tall sticks propped up behind it. Two women stand on the porch wearing dresses with capes or blanket strips over their shoulders. They each hold a geometrically-decorated bag, and wear conical hats. Other woven hats can be seen among the baskets and pottery piled in front of them. Their hair seems to be either pulled back or cut short.
TCI NotesAn outside photograph of two unidentified women standing on a porch of a house. There are many different sizes and types of baskets that are on the ground, on the steps, and on the porch. Some of the baskets are on top of each other. There are some that are hanging on the wall of the house. On each side of the window are beaded buckskin dresses. This is a collection that has been collected by Major Moorhouse. Some of these objects have appeared in some of Major Moorhouse's other photographs on different people.
