This is an interesting photograph of a flood seeping into the town of Mayo.
I don’t know what year it was taken.
The photo is from the Gord Von Finster collection.
Some of the townspeople are seen watching the approaching flood.
Mayo has had some major floods.
This particular photo was taken by William Hare, who took some incredible black-and-white photographs that really documented the floods and, also, he really told the story of the silver camps with his photography in general.
He was the major photographer of the Keno-Mayo area.
If you know anything about this flood, or would just like to mention something about William Hare the photographer, please write Jim Robb, the Colourful Five Per Cent Scrapbook — Can You Identify? c/o the Yukon News, 211 Wood Street, Whitehorse, Yukon, Y1A 2E4, or e-mail through the News website, www.yukon-news.com.
