Russian Orthodox Cathedral; ca. 1910.

Image from the Archives Collection

John Hellenthal Collection. Series 6.

This is a Winter & Pond photograph. The location is Sitka, Alaska. The church is the Cathedral of St. Michael the Archangel.

Reason for Selection: The original church was built in the 1840s. It is the seat of the Bishop of the Alaska Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Greek Catholic Church. The church is representative of the influence of Russian culture in Alaska. The photograph is also a fine representation of the work of Winter and Pond. (KRH)
