image thumbnail Lowell Cabin, Beaver City Alaska Title taken from caption. "11528 -- (10) The cost of constructing cabins in the Klondike during the latter part of 1897 was considerable. Logs were selling at $50 apiece, and wages were from $15 to $20 per day. An ordinary one-room cabin required an outlay of from $700 to $1,000, according to finish. If a rough-board partition was desired, $150 had to be added to the cost. Several two-story buildings, 25x80 feet in size, were constructed in Dawson at a cost of from $12,000 to $20,000 each. In the more remote isolated camps the cost of construction could only be estimated by the amount of leisure time available and the timber supply.Beaver City is located on one of the tributaries of the Koyukuk, a considerable distance north from the big bend of the Yukon, and the scene represented in this view is that of a small cabin in which a little party of gold-seekers passed the winter of 1898-99 in a most comfortable manner.""John P.

image thumbnail Miner's Banquet, Beaver City, Alaska. Title taken from caption. "11511 -- (11) The participants at this festive board were all members of one party, and the banquet was given by the leader of the party and his wife to show their appreciation of the building of the log cabin for winter quarters, which the united efforts of the band of willing workers had hastily brought to completion. In this region where the difficulties of transportation limit the food supply, a spread of such an elaborate character was a great treat to the miners. This spot is seventy-five miles north of Arctic City and was named by the party Beaver City." Stereographic Library Collection, ca. 1800-1910;

image thumbnail Will Campbell, the Only white Boy on the Allenkaket River, Alaska Title taken from caption. "11555 -- (6) Judging from his suit and hood of fur and his team of dogs, we might mistake the boy in this picture for an Esquimau. In 1898, at the time of the great rush for gold, he was the only white boy on the Allenkaket River in Alaska. He is delighted with his team of six young dogs and no doubt enjoys many a long ride with them over the snow. For practical use, a team usually consists of ten or twenty dogs and is a mixture of Esquimaux dogs and dogs from the coast. The team is guided by call, a line is never used. The dogs are easily taken care of and are especially suited to the needs of the miners of that region. After a hard day's work they are fed a piece of dried dog salmon and then burying themselves in the snow, leaving only their noses stick out, they go to sleep for the night. Being very docile and sagacious, the young dogs are much enjoyed by the children as pets. These dogs were indispensable to the Yukoners in pushing their way into the interior of Alaska."Copyright, 1909, by Keystone View Company Stereographic Library Collection, ca. 1800-1910;
