Scope and content

This is a photo of an aboriginal woman and two children. The woman and older child are standing behind a wheelbarrow in which the younger child is sitting. Behind them on the left is log house with a gable of siding boards and adorned with elk (?) antlers and possibly a cowbell. Outside, beside the door, is a bookcase with cooking utensils. There is a chopping block on the right with a crude tower and rope-operated contraption behind that. In the background is another building.
