Our indexer, Dee has finished describing the C.W. Scarborough Photographs which we have put online in Alaska’s Digital Archives. Here’s what she has to say:
Basically, Wow, is what I have to say. And Beauty Abounds. This little collection of 44 images is beautiful – mostly, beautiful faces and beautiful scenery.
See what I’m saying? Yeah.
Sadly, the main photographer of this collection, Charles W. Scarborough’s last days and last work were captured through these photos as he was lost and presumed dead in 1923, failing to return from a hunting trip and re-board the Duxbury, the boat he sailed upon while on a trading voyage to the east of Point Barrow.
