Name of creator
The Yukon Historical Society was established in Whitehorse in 1950 by a group of residents who saw the need to preserve the history of the community and the Yukon Territory. In 1976 the name was changed to the MacBride Museum Society in honour of William D. MacBride who devoted much of his time to the museum. The museum collects artifacts, archival records and photographs, geological and natural history specimens, and ethnographic materials that reflect the history of the Yukon Territory.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of photographs apparently documenting a trip to the Klondike Gold Fields though the order is not always sequential. The images are faded and locations and activities are difficult to identify. Subject matter includes a tent with a Union Jack flag, possibly a Royal North West Mounted Police (RNWMP) tent, men posing in front of the tent, an exterior view of Billy's Mug, a pub in a city, an ocean going vessel, Skagway, a man standing on a rail line probably in Skagway, a group of men travelling in winter with loaded sleds, log cabins, the Yukon River and rapids, a large body of water, possibly Lake Laberge, men hunting, Niagara Falls, and many unidentified scenic views.
Some photographs are duplicates.
