Skagway, Alaska 1949: video

Marlene McCluskey at Soapy's grave


Marlene McCluskey of the Skagway Historical Society sent me a link to the Explore North Blog which has the Youtube video below, shot "from a 16mm film shot in 1949 by a woman on an Alaska trip." It is 4:12 minutes long and at 1:08, for a mere second, literally, there is a shot of Soapy's second grave marker on display at the Harriet Pullen House (Hotel).





1885: Soapy and one of his boosters get into a street fight with a victim of the prize package soap racket.
