‘In 1898-’99 Michael James Henry, with Erastus Corning Hawkin’s agreement and approval, formed the Red Line Transportation Company Stage that contracted with the railway (White Pass and Yukon Route) to deliver commercial freight to Log Cabin and Lake Bennett and the railway’s construction supplies to ‘the camps.’”
This is a quote from the book White Pass, Gateway to the Klondike by Roy Minter.
One of the first times that I heard of the Red Line Transportation Co. Stage was when Willard Phelps, of Carcross and Whitehorse, gave me a letterhead of that company.
I appreciated that because I collect Yukon letterheads of the past, especially one like that item.
If you would like to share information or comment about the Red Line Transportation Co. Stage or about letterhead collecting, 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.
