I haven’t been to the Yukon since I was fourteen, and so have no
photographs of my own.
Eric Hegg photo links
These are links to photos in the Eric Hegg collection at the University of Washington. Eric Hegg used glass plate photography to take
hundreds of photos of the stampede, and his is one of the best visual
records we have of that time and place. I modeled my photographer character on him, and these photos depict various locations in True Gold. Click on the links to see the photos.
A view of the Golden Staircase. Maybe this was the one Eric showed to Karin.
