    Alaska Yukon Gold Rush Era: The Finest and Most Important Photo Album We Have Ever Offered. This album features forty large-format 9.5" x 7.5" photos, one per page. It includes images by various well-known Alaska photographers, including Walter Strand, Draper & Co., Frank Nowell, and Case & Draper.

    Featured subjects include: Mining, gold bars, Native Americans, town views, steamships, military troops, miners, street scenes, and mining executives. While we have posted a large selection of representative images on our website, this album should really be inspected in person to be fully appreciated. These photos are exceptional both in their subject matter and their artistry. Condition is generally excellent, although a few of the photos have minor, but not distracting flaws.

    The album belonged to Patterson Billups, who moved from Seattle to the Klondike in May 1898 to work as a surveyor on the White Pass and Yukon Railroad. He remained in the area until 1910, working as a surveyor for several mining companies.
