Members of the Yukon Order of Pioneers march in the Discovery Day parade in Dawson City.
On the far left of the photograph you can see the Yukon Order of Pioneers Hall (which burned down many years ago since this photo was taken.) I believe the early day Y.O.O.P. banner, shown here carried by a pioneer, was destroyed at the same time the Pioneer Hall burned. The large building in the centre was an original gold rush era hotel, which in early Dawson City days was called the Melbourne Hotel and, in later times, was the Principal Hotel, then the Pearl Harbour Hotel and eventually (and at the time it burned) the Bonanza Hotel. It had a very beautiful mahogany bar with mirrors, etc., a real Klondike saloon.
