S.S. Klondike - Whitehorse, Yukon

The S.S. Klondike Photo Album

In 1903, the 58-foot-long barge Atlin, built entirely of B.C. fir by the British Yukon Navigation Company, was built at Atlin to be used by the Scotia. It was used until the early 1930s, then was put up on ways at Atlin. In February 1974, the barge was trucked to Whitehorse and set up on the riverfront at the site where the S.S. Klondike was to be located. In the summers, a tent is now set up on the barge to show sternwheeler movies to visitors.
