Man With Seal #FolklorePhoto

Sealing has always been an essential part of Newfoundland and Labrador's culture. The aboriginal peoples were the first to hunt seal; the fat rendered into oil for heat and light, their skin and fur used for clothing, and the meat consumed. Here we have a photo of a man with a white coat seal, photo courtesy of the Logy Bay-Middle Cove-Outer Cove Museum.
