Mail and freight on the Valdez summit

"Mail and freight on the Valdez summit Fairbanks-Valdez trail." Copyright by A.J. Johnson. Publsihed by Johnson and Hall's Book Store. Cataloguer's note: This is a picturesque view of the mountains in the distance and travelers with their horses and sleighs making their way up the steep hill. Down in the valley, one can make out the small settlement, or camp from which this group of travelers had perhaps started out. Archives, University of Alaska Fairbanks.
