This is the kind of cabin that I love to sketch and photograph. It has its own unique character and personality.
“This is a view of Bobby Greave’s cabin on the Queen Gulch near the Wernecke mining camp. This was the first cabin that Bill and Nora Hare lived in around 1923 to 1926.”
Bill Hare did a wonderful job of photographing the silver camps and life around the Mayo-Keno area. His work really was valuable in recording this history.
The above old photograph is a William Hare photograph from the Yukon Archives.
