THE FIRST NATURAL-COLOR PHOTOGRAPHS FROM TIHE ARCTIC THE ARCTIC DWELLER DELIGHTS IN VIVID COLORS As if to counteract the depressing effects of rain, wind, fog and snow, the South Green landers paint their houses in bright blues, browns and greens.

Note the family sled, with its bright blue runners, stored on the roof of the shed.
