    Other photos not listed are of similar quality, but not signed or captioned. Most are gelatin prints. Nine of the thirty-two have minor condition issues, but all are in collectable condition, and most photos are in great shape. One of the finest groups of early Alaska images we have encountered. Really should be inspected in person to fully appreciate.
