  • "Ora" at Five Finger Rapids on Yukon River, ca. 1899

    "Ora" at Five Finger Rapids on Yukon River, ca. 1899

    Pillsbury, Arthur C. (Arthur Clarence)

    This photo shows the "Ora" taking the water route along the Yukon River to reach the Klondike gold fields. This route started at St. Michael, Alaska and took longer than the overland routes along the Chilkoot or White Pass trails. It was also more expensive because it saved travelers from the hardships of overland travel while carrying their prospecting gear. A photographer and onlooker can be seen on the cliff at the right of the photograph. The "Ora" was one of three steamboats constructed by the Bennett Lake & Klondyke Navigation Company in 1898 The others were named Flora and Nora. This photograph was published in the June 1900 issue of Harper's Weekly.
