The McKannas and life in Alaska

Here are some wonderful photographs of Alaska taken in the 1920’s and 1930’s.  They were among my Aunt Vivian’s photographs.

Apparently Hilary McKanna returned to Alaska to work for his brother Bob, who lived in Seward, during the depression.  I am not familiar with Alaskan history and locations so if you recognize anything please leave a comment.  Just click on the photo and it will get larger.  Don’t forget to hit your back button to return or the tab to return to this blog.

    I just love looking at these old photos. The unlabelled seaport has the exact same wharf as the photo labelled ‘Seward’. I noticed some of the same buildings too.

      Byrna: Thanks for stopping by. I was looking at that photo again today and decided it was probably just another angle of Seward. Hubby agrees. Still I wanted others to take a look and see what they thought, so thanks for your comments. It looks so cold there, brrrr….
