Found with a Cree Grammar (1881)

A old photograph found with Charles William Richardson’s copy of John Horden’s A Grammar of the Cree Language, as Spoken by the Cree Indians of North America (London: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1881). Richardson (1883-1964) managed trading posts for the Hudson Bay Company in Canada’s Peace River region. As this photograph was bound to spend the better part of its existence in a archival folder, we figured it might be nice to give it (and those pictured) a chance at immortality in cyberspace.
