  • [ca. 1932-1936]

The fonds consists of photographs which illustrate traditional placer mining techniques, probably from Alaska. Pictures include water flumes, sluice boxes, water monitors, men with picks and shovels, and a winter scene on a trail with a fully loaded sledge near a campfire. Also included are four summer time scenes; a camp with a canoe and tent, and men cooking flapjacks and meat over open fires. Captions can be found on the backs of loose photographs in the album. People identified include Charlie Thompson and Tom Blais.
