This is a picture taken from an old postcard, which was given to me by my old friend, the late Fred Good, many years ago.
This group of men appears to be part of a survey or geological survey crew. The bottom of the card reads: “The Old Chief, Francis Lake, Yukon, Canada.” It’s quite an interesting photograph but I don’t know any of the names of the people on the card, which was probably taken in the 1940s or 1950s.
They appear to be very interesting individuals. Probably somebody in Watson Lake, Dease Lake or the Lower Post area would know about them. I hope somebody writes in with information and shares the history and knowledge.
The postcard is from the Jim Robb Collection.
