    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.
