The original title of this view was "The New Home", the brand of sewing machine being used by this unidentified Native American woman. Beyond the woman's campsite can be seen two canoes. The whole scene is most likely at the shore of Puget Sound. The faint image of a pier can be seen in detail view 2. The original photo was taken by Seattle photographer Walter P. Miller, at one time the partner of Asahel Curtis, brother of Edward S. Curtis. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
