This photo was found in the attic of Keller’s Drug Store of Skagway, Alaska among a Case and Draper collection that is dated from the late1800's to theearly 1900's. The building that Keller used for the Drug Store was originally the Case and Draper Photo Studio.
Photographer Case and Draper
The work of photographers William H. Case and Herbert Horace Draper offers a glimpse of early twentieth- century Alaska. Fueled by the excitement of the Klondike Gold Rush, they opened a studio in Skagway, in 1898 and later another in Juneau. Their clientele included businesses, newspapers, local residents, and tourists. The partnership dissolved in 1907, but both men continued to operate their own photography and curio shops as until their deaths.
The backbone of Case and Draper’s work was steamship tourism, which had flourished in Alaska since the 1880s. They sold postcards and prints of Alaskan archetypes by the thousands: Natives and their arts, rustic towns and industries, fisherman and miners. Some images, reprinted in books and articles for almost a century, have become familiar icons of the North.
