Two men in a bidarka canoe, Prince William Sound 1895-1903

Bidarka crossing the Prince William Sound, and two men can be seen in the boat. Note: The Gompertz family came to Alaska in 1895. Chas. Wm. Gompertz was in charge of building canneries for the Pacific Steam Whaling Co. (later the Alaska Packers). He acted as superintendent until September 1903 when an arsonist set fire to the cannery causing a total loss. These photos by Dr. Kate Gompertz were mounted on the pages of an old Chinese account book, and most of them were taken with an old 4x5 camera.
