Two attractive original photographs by noted Skagway photography firm Case & Draper. William Case and Horace Draper followed the excitement of the Klondike Gold Rush and went North in 1898. They stayed and worked in partnership from a studio in Skagway until 1907- 1908. The first of these photos depicts three armed men on a hillside at Whtie PAss, Alaska, with two large mountain goats strung up after a hunt. The second is a captivating landscape of Juneau and the Gastineau Channel, with the town of Douglas in the distance. Impressive examples from these significant Alaskan photographers.
