    Signatures and inscriptions note:
    Original caption: Canadian Economy is enriched yearly by a wealth of furs - contribution of the little-known, poorly-mapped, sparsely-populated North. Out of the land of the Eskimos comes the bulk of the white fox catch, while a few blue, red and cross foxes, weasel (ermine) and polar bears are also traded. The Eskimo is a happy, childlike nomad. He lives mainly by fishing and hunting, his principal foods being seal, caribou, ptarmigan and white whale. This is a typical Eskimo woman of the Canadian Eastern Artic.
