Rare Collection of 15 mounted photos showing Klondike, Mining, Dawson, Bennett, Mountainside Prospecting, Town Scenes Eskimo Photo 1899 Dawson Fire & more. 1) The Dawson Fire. Dawson City was hit with a fire in April of 1899. It was an isolated gold-rush mecca. A massive city fire made the front pages of newspapers across the United States . A huge blaze consumed about three quarters of the town - leaving piles of smoking ashes where once stood clapboard emporiums. News reports quoted the son of the Mayor of Seattle, who said that hundreds of miners, gamblers, shopkeepers and saloon men were now sleeping in the snow. He said that panic broke out as the fire expanded & the uncontrollable blaze consumed thousands of tons of provisions. 2) Photo of Lindemann (Tent City) Klondike stampeders set up camp along the shores of Lake Lindeman and Lake Bennett during the winter of 1897-1898. These men, women and children had managed to drag and carry tons of provisions over the harsh trails down to the lakes, which formed the headwaters of the Yukon River. The crowd had to wait for the river ice to break before they could sail down the Yukon into Dawson. 3)Towns people celebrating the Queen's Birthday, Dawson 1899. 4)Photo showing July 4, 1899, celebration with many towns people standing on wooden planks, & on roof tops.
