Chippewa fishermen on Saint Mary's River

Cyanotype stereoscopic photograph of part of the Chippewa settlement at the lower end of the rapids between the shoreline and the embankment of the State Lock. The canoes and fishing gear were made by hand here. The curved poles in the foreground are handles for the long-handled dip-nets used to fish the rapids until the early 1900s.
