This photo is of some auto parts in storage at Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, in Skagway, Alaska. The guy who owned these never threw anything away and his storage buildings were filled with auto parts, along with many other cool things--and plenty of just trash. The first photo is of what I think are hub caps, one Nash and one ?. The other two are of parts that were half buried in a yard. I've identified the axle as made by Essex Motors--it's on the hubcap. Any suggestions about dates, etc? I'll post more photographs of engines, etc. later. Thanks.
The attached photograph shows a car I'm trying to identify. I'm working on a history of the building in the background (from Skagway, Alaska) and this photograph is undated. A date on the car would at least give me an earliest possible date. Thanks for any help! Kind of funny to have cars there, total road mileage couldn't have been much, you couldn't drive out of Skagway until the 1970s or 1980s. Bob
