Image Info

This October 1895 John Dunn photo shows a remote hunting camp in the Moosehead Lake region of northern Maine.

A small area in the woods would be cleared and tents erected to create an outpost. Dunn’s tent is seen on the right; the guide’s tent is on the left; and the mess tent – where meals were taken -- is in the center.

Note the stretched moose hide on a makeshift drying rack, with the bull moose’s skull with attached antlers resting on a brush pile in the center of the photo.
