Abstract:

The collection documents the construction and expansion of the Moffat Road. With one exception, the photographs in the album were taken by C.L. McClure, and show views from and of the railway and its many tunnels, including several towns along the route. One photo, likely taken by F.J. Francis, shows David Moffat and other men on the caboose of a train entering tunnel number 35. Many of the photographs in the album are retouched in the negative, some heavily. The album also includes a newspaper clipping describing the sale of railway bonds to investors in October 1902 by Frank B. Gibson of the International Trust Company.

Additional photographs include views of the Moffat Road by McClure, F.J. Francis, and others, as well as general views of the area, including some by the Detroit Publishing Co. F.J. Francis's images document the opening of Gore Canyon; two of these include David Moffat. One image by an unidentified photographer shows the blasting of a tunnel. A number of photographs show Grand Lake, including a series taken in 1890. Manuscript captions on two photographs identify one man as "Daddy;" based on a comparison with the clipping in the album, this may be Frank B. Gibson. Another man is identified as J.A. Ferguson. The photographs are accompanied by a clipping concerning Gibson's appointment as financial director of the railway in 1908.

Two photographs of Alaska are also present: one shows Princeton Glacier, Nassau Fjord; the other a glacier on the Alaska Central Railway.
