Fairbanks "Museum of the North"

A few pics from a short stop in Fairbanks at the "Museum of the North":

Fairbanks Daily Times (circa June 21, 1913)

Hand-made flag from a silk handkerchief, raised at the Summit 20,320 feet, 
Denali (Mt. McKinley) 1913

Part of the climbing gear.... a portable communion set.
Just as important as other gear, i.e., fur-lined goggles, single bit ax, galvanized sheet metal crampons and a portable stove.
