Description

The stereograph contains a black and white image of several men camped on the Chilkoot Trail. A tent stands to the right of the men while a pile of supplies are pictured to the left. A toll gate stands in the distance as rocks and trees surround the path. The image is adhered to a peach-colored paper card mount, and documentary information appears on the card's reverse.
