Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada – Part 2, Street Scenes and Miscellaneous

I have visited Dawson City twice, in 2007 and 2014, on tours by John Hall’s Alaska. Both tours afforded adequate time for guided coach trips and just strolling around the city. I have previously posted sets about the Dredge No. 4 (https://www.uglyhedgehog.com/t-641187-1.html) and St. Mary’s Catholic Church (https://www.uglyhedgehog.com/t-657684-1.html), but I thought perhaps folks here might like to see a more varied collection of photographs of that very interesting and history city. I am including shots from both the 2007 and 2014 visits. Dawson City is famous as the residence of 2 famous authors—Robert Service and Jack London—and there are historic sites about both.

This set is in 2 Parts: Part 1 is of major structures in good repair, and Part 2 is of street scenes and decrepit buildings.

When I was there (many years ago) the theater was boarded up and for sale. It appears that it was open in 2014.

Dalek, thanks so much for your nice comment.

rcarol, I guess it was, but I didn't attend a show there. The evening shows in 2007 were held in the Diamond Tooth Gertie's saloon.
