Inupiat Family, 1929

 This photo of a Inupiat family was taken in Noatak, Alaska circa 1929, by Ernest S.Curtis and comes from the Library of Congress.  I had nearly completed colorizing this photo and somehow accidentally flattened the image before doing some detail work.

Mae Clarke Colorized

Mae Clarke , 1931

This photo of Mae Clarke was taken in 1931, which was a great year for her.
