to website Yukon Photographers: The Gold Rush Era, 1897-1900
Photographers have been visiting the Yukon since U.S. Army Lieutenant
Schwatka travelled down the Yukon River in 1883. After the discovery
of gold on Bonanza Creek in 1896, many commercial photographers
travelled to Dawson City, photographing the journey and establishing
studios along the way. Many of the stampeders also had small roll-film
cameras as part of their outfits. The photographers featured here
were in the Yukon just before or during the gold rush and are
only some of those that photographed the Klondike gold rush.
