Alaska ~1915

Just a few years before Mom & Dad even had thoughts -- let alone of Alaska! Here's what the caption with the picture said: Stern-wheelers Louise and Delta on the Yukon River circa 1915 at the Gold Rush supply center of Ruby, Alaska, which at its peak was home to some 3,000 people. A fire in 1929 and flood two years later obliterated much of the town, which today has fewer than 200 residents.
