This is an original 1916 halftone print of Mrs. Janet McDonald-- one of the world's few women sealers. She supplied the animals to aquaria and zoological gardens. She would give fresh fish to her captured seals. Little by little, she would get the seals to eat dead fish, so it would be easier for the zoos to take care of them.
