This old photograph was probably taken in the late 1930s or 1940s. It was taken by the late Chuck Haines, who lived in Dawson City at that time period.
I think the plane on the right was called the Eastman Flying Boat, though I could be wrong. My friend Bob Cameron, who is the Yukon’s vintage aircraft expert, would know.
I hope he writes in to share his knowledge.
Photo is from the Yukon Archives—Chuck Haines Fonds.
