Narrative: For over a century the most inclement seaboard of Labrador Las been inhabited by whites, members of the Moravian missions. So early as 1752 a " brother " of this community endeavoured to found a station on one of the inlets ou this inhospitable coast; but he was murdered together with five sailors, and the mission was not resumed till the year 1770. Three stations were successively established, first at Nain, about the middle of the north-east coast, then at Okak, an island close to the shore 100 miles farther north; lastly, at Hoffenthul (Hopedale), an inlet about the same distance from Nain, but in the opposite or south-east direction. In 1830 the Moravians founded a fourth mission still farther north, that of Hebron, near the neck of the extreme peninsula, which projects northwards between Ungava Bay and the Atlantic. Since then two more stations have been added to the group, Rama, north of Hebron, and Zoar, between Nain and Hopedale. At certain seasons more than three-fourths of all the eastern Eskimo are grouped round the fix Moravian stations, whose population ranges from about 30 souls (Rama) to 350 (Okak). Thus at Christmas and during the first weeks of the new year all reside in their winter habitations in the vicinity of the church and the pastor's dwelling, and at that time they are chiefly engaged in trapping foxes, bunting birds, or chopping wood. Then follows in February the seal-hunting season, after which they return about Easter to the stations, penetrating thence into the interior in pursuit of the reindeer. In June they return to the coast to collect the eggs of sea-gulls and other birds on the rocks and island?, and spend the close of the year in fishing. Considerable changes have taken place in these Eskimo communities since the frequent visits of white sailors and fishers to the stations. Most of the natives now dress in the European style, and garments of cloth have replaced their former sealskin costume. Nor do their habitations any longer consist of huts made of earth and sods or even of hardened snow, resembling in form as well as in the structure and arrangement of the approaches, those underground chambers or burrows approached by galleries which are still seen in various Scandinavian regions. They now build European houses with planks and joists, which they furnish with beds, tables, carpets, rugs, looking-glasses, clocks, lamps, and other articles imported from England or the United States. They now drink nothing but tea, the use of ;ill alcoholic liquors being interdicted. Formerly hunters, they are now chiefly timhers, but have, for the most part, abandoned the frail and unseaworthy kayak for boats constructed on the European model, and even sailing-vessels of considerable size. The most popular game is footl all, introduced by the English and joined in by both sexes, the women often carrying their infants on their backs. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy!

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving

Full star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star small

This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
