More Historical Photographs of Atlin

Here are some more pictures of Atlin during the Gold Rush. Steamboats were a crucial mode of transportation into this area (the Atlin goldfields) at the turn of the last century, as they were for the Yukon goldfields.

Dog transportation was also fairly common, as you may see in the second photo of the dog water cart.

The last photo, of the Pine Tree Hotel, is interesting. There is no longer a hotel by that name in Atlin; however, there are a number of other businesses that currently use Pine Tree as a company name.
