Scope and content

ALASKAN HIGHWAY PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM. British Columbia: N.D. [ca 1945]. 10 1/4" x 13 1/4" in thick green embossed boards, with title (Photographs) in gilt and tied at spine with green cord. Photo album contains 172 original photographs and 27 real photo postcards. Photographs measure 5 3/4" x 3 1/2," with a majority captioned in manuscript. Through these photos one has visual journey of travel on the newly constructed Alaskan Highway through British Columbia and into the Yukon. The travelers set off from Fort Saint John, passing through Fort Nelson, and seeming to go as far as Watson Lake, just across the border into the Yukon Territory. Along the way, they drove through the Trout River Valley, Steamboat Mountain, Muncho Lake, and many other impressive features of the landscape. The final section of images comprise home photos of the family that made the trip and some photos taken earlier.
