This photographic print, dated November 1, 1946, depicts several buildings lining a road. The text at the bottom of the photo reads, “Agency Hospital & Congregational Church, Elbowoods, North Dakota, Present Lands.” The closest building in the photo is large and appears to be brick; it is likely the hospital. The farthest building appears to be the church. A sign next to the hospital reads, “No. 33.”
Original print housed at the National Archives Catalogue in Kansas City, Missouri in the “Records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs” group. The Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation are noted as “subjects represented” in the collection
