Artist's Description

In the early days of settlement in the Yukon Territory of Canada, steam paddle-wheelers like this one were plying the Yukon River as the prime means of getting from somewhere to anywhere. After the start of the Klondike Gold Rush,hundreds of paddlewheelers plied the Yukon River, supplying Dawson City, Whitehorse, and St Michael with all sorts of goods and services. With the advent of air travel and the construction of the Alaska Highway, their era came to an end.
I took this picture when I was stationed in Whitehorse in the summer of 1955. At the time, I don’t believe there were any ships actually running. The only ones I could find were beached like this one.
Taken with a Exakta 35mm. SLR, Kodachrome film, and scanned with a Canoscan 4000US scanner 49 years later!
