Niesje Steinkruger sent this picture of the Valdez Stage. Her description is below. Keep in mind that the trail between Fairbanks and Valdez was 400 miles long.
“This is a good picture of the Valdez Stage. Many patients travelled from Fairbanks and the Interior to Valdez via this Stage. It was a long, hard trip by Stage, Boat and Train to Morningside Hospital in Portland. The patient was accompanied by a US Marshall. Sometimes the patient was transported with convicted criminals the Marshall was taking south.”
