From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: SCENE IN THE ESQUIMAUX VILLAGE. The picture [shows] a number of Esquimaux picking nickels from cracks in a board with their dog whips, in which sport they are very expert. In the background will be seen one of their "Topeks," a sealskin tent in which they live during their short summer.
