Summary

Pictured are four animal skulls: two larger ones resting on the ground against a building and two smaller ones hanging on the building's wall. This image is part of a series of photographs taken during the Lincoln Ellsworth Expedition to Alberta and British Columbia in 1914, for which the Bureau of Biological Survey conducted field investigations in Canada to learn more about the habits and distribution of big game mammals. Naturalist Edmund Heller accompanied the expedition to the Dease River/Telegraph Creek area of British Columbia and later to Alberta.
