About This Image
Photographer's Swedish studio stamp, "A. Olson, Cabinet Fotografi Ostersund," on recto mount as well as on verso. Laplander family in heavy fur coats and hats stand in front of a painted landscape full of dramatic peaks and valleys. The woman is also carrying something on her back. Printed on the back is: "Jemtlandska vyer finns i rikhaltigt lager", which means "Extensive stock of scenes from Jämtland available" (Jämtland being a province of Sweden). My thanks to reader Lasse Karlsson for the transalation and additional information.
