Prospector and Pack Dog
This picture was taken in the early 1900's near Seward, Alaska. It shows a gold prospector and his pack dog. He is preparing to leave for the summer prospecting season. He, and his dog, appear to be well equipped. I find it interesting that he appears to be wearing a necktie. I would not think prospectors would be so concerned about such a fashion item.
