This is the late Bud Fisher standing alongside the old truck.

Bud was a longtime resident of the Mayo-Keno and Whitehorse areas.

In later years, he worked for the Yukon’s department of travel and publicity, where he was very effective as a symbol of colourful Yukon history.

With his long white beard and prospector-like attire, the visitors loved him (he can be seen in the above brochure).

The remains of a first “four-wheel-drive vehicle” is next to Bud.

It was standing on the top of Galena Hill.

“Warren McFarland, who was once manager of Yukon Consolidated Gold Corp., originally brought this truck as a college graduate working for the Guggenheims,” according to Hills of Silver, by Dr. Aaro E. Aho.
