    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $110 and take approximately 6-8 weeks.

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and gives support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself. Backing is what we recommend for framing, and for any poster needing restoration.

    The March 1898 issue of The Century featured two prominent articles on the Klondike: "The Rush to the Klondike over the Mountain Passes," by Edward S. Curtis (illustrated with photographs by the author) and "The River Trip to the Klondike," by John Sidney Webb. Gold had been discovered in the Yukon in August 1896, and over the following years, thousands of prospectors attempted the difficult journey there.

    This poster has been attributed to Charles H. Woodbury.
