Evidently there were three Cascas built.
Which one is in the above photograph?
Photographer Richard Hartmier thinks it was No. 2.
Does anyone out there know for sure?
I believe the photograph was taken by Mickey McCarthy who came up to the Yukon in the early days (maybe during the gold rush) and took some really good pictures of everything from hunting camps to steamboats.
The barge in front has two large boxes on it, almost looking like containers, so maybe it’s Casca No. 3—who knows?
