Whitehorse Shipyards

This scene of the Whitehorse Shipyards shows 3 paddle wheelers under construction at the same time during the winter in early 1900’s.  The long corrugated steel warehouses stretching along the Yukon River stored the cargo ready to be picked up by the river boats in the summer and transported down to Dawson City.
