The collection consists of 31 black and white prints and accompanying negatives copied by Bill Roozeboom from an album he located in Vancouver. The images include: the reception of Governor General Minto's party which visited Dawson in 1900; Dawson street scenes; mining claims; people crossing the Klondike River; the Trail of '98; stampeders; scenes at Dyea, Lake Bennett, Whitehorse and Lake Laberge. Also images of Fort Selkirk and the Yukon Field Force. The majority of the photographs are by Larss & Duclos. The remainder are by Eric Hegg and Goetzman. The original album contained 40 photographs. Nine of the 40 were not copied as they duplicated images already held by the archives.
