Description A relic of Sir John Franklin's last expedition 1845-48. An empty soup tin painted red with a small and a large hole in the top. The remains of a label are attached. Probably found in an Inuit cache at Cape Maria Louisa by the Schwatka Search Expedition 1878-79. Heinrich Klutschak reported that an Inuk had told the expedition that he had cached these items under a rock for lack of transport but was unable to find them when he came back.
