    Description

    Sluicing Gold in Alaska. This sepia-toned photograph shows nine men at a mining camp. A woman, dog, two cabins and a storage shed complete the picture. The hills have been denuded of trees. The scene is titled in the negative: "Sluceing Scene on Poverty Bar". The locale was Alaska during the Klondike Gold Rush period. The photo measures 13" x 10.5" and is affixed to an 18" x 14" mount which is darkly toned along the top 50%. Aside from some minor fly-specks, the photo is in very fine condition. Judging from the title, these prospectors were eking out a meager living.

    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.
