"Keystone Canyon is one of the narrow defiles through which all must pass to gain the interior of Alaska, via the Valdez-Fairbanks Trail." This postcard was published ca. 1919 by the H-H-T Co.



"The Winter Trail over Thomson's Pass is a scene of busy activity when weather conditions are favorable for travel. Freight can be much easier handled on the winter trail than by wagon or pack animals in summer". This postcard, which shows a couple of dog teams among the horse teams, was published ca. 1919 by the H-H-T Co. The correct spelling of the name of the pass is Thompson's, through which the Richardson Highway now climbs to 2,678 feet.
