    Alaskan Gold Rush: Anchorage and Nome Photos. This lot contains four items: a 1905 postcard showing "Front Street, Ketchikan, Alaska, October 5, 1905", an 8.5" x 6.5" sepia photo of downtown "Nome City 1900" (minor skinning primarily to border) with throngs of humanity and the "Gold Belt Dance Hall" prominently featured, a 9" x 45" panoramic photo by Scarborough of Anchorage, Alaska (circa 1915-1925 showing the Chugach Mountains looking east to west) and an 8" x 50.5" panoramic photo of "Anchorage Now" (circa 1960) comprised of eleven 8" x 10" glossies taped together in a rather unprofessional attempt to produce a true panoramic photo. This may have been used with the earlier panoramic photo for a news article. We assign no particular value to the last piece. The other three items are old and nice.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
