MARIE "SUE" FEINLER. Tourist Scrapbook; July 1931. .35 cu. ft.

Marie "Sue" Feinler, of Spokane, Washington, traveled to Alaska from July 15 through July 27, 1931. Miss Feinler took part in a cruise through the Inside Passage, aboard S. S. Northwestern of the Alaska Steamship Company. The cruise took Miss Feinler from Seattle to Skagway, round trip, with stops in Ketchikan, Wrangell, Juneau, Taku, Chatham, Sitka, and Haines in Alaska, and White Pass City, Lake Bennett, and Port Althorp in British Columbia.

This collection consists of a scrapbook, compiled by Sue Feinler, of a cruise trip along Alaska's Inside Passage in July of 1931. Included in the scrapbook are 139 black and white photographs and photo post cards, including images of the ship, its passengers and crew, Taku and Mendenhall Glaciers, Treadwell Mine, the international boundary, and the towns of Ketchikan, Wrangell, Juneau, Sitka, Haines, Skagway, White Pass City, Lake Bennett, and Port Althorp. Also included in the scrapbook is a map of the cruise route, a passenger list, menus, and daily itineraries produced by the ship's crew. The collection also contains a xerographic copy of the scrapbook, and 47 selected copy negatives.

The collection was acquired by the archives in January 2001.
