Peary snowshoes, Norway, ca. 1905

Description

Some of Norway snowshoe maker A. Mellen "Mellie" Dunham's famed snowshoes are pictured.

The pair standing in the center were made to Commodore Robert Peary's specifications for his Arctic explorations. These required considerably longer length than standard snowshoes.
