Image Metadata: "Battling to free itself, the huge whale dragged the big whaler "Diomede" in a zifeet, snapped. Two hours later the denizen of the sea was sighted again and harpooned. Weakened by its last flight, the mammal was unable to escape the second time and was landed. The catch goes to the credit of Albert K.
