Life on the Edge: Images of Carcross, Yukon Territory
The Vance / McMurphy House was built in 1909 by Herman Vance, manager of the Venus Mine
and later the Big Thing Mine. Starting about 1919, 3 generations of the McMurphy family lived in the home. Here, on May 10, 2003, locals watch it being torn down.
