Elbridge Warren Merrill

Lovely, original, hand tinted photograph by Merrill of Sitka. Merrill was a famous Alaskan artist/photographer, and this is one of the nicest examples of his work. Two Tlingit or Haida canoes. The small one is probably a spruce canoe; the larger of cedar. Blankets hang over the bow and stern, which will be used to cover the canoe to keep the sun from drying it out. According to the N.P.S., "Elbridge Warren Merrill was a Boston engraver and news photographer who had come to Alaska in 1897. He arrived in Sitka that year, is said to have gone on to the Klondike, and returned to Sitka in 1899. After working at odd jobs in Sitka, Merrill opened a curio store and photography studio in 1905. His store was located in downtown Sitka in the Mills Building, and his studio was on Jamestown Bay. At the time it was accessible only by a footpath that wound along the beach and through Indian River Park."  This wonderful photograph is in great condition with the original studio frame, 8"x 10". Hand signed in the lower right, in white paint, by Merrill.

              Alaska
Allen Hasselborg

Here is an original, folio, unpublished, fine portrait photograph of Allen Hasselborg. For more information on Hasselborg, see the book "Bear Man of Admiralty Island: A Biography of Allen E. Hasselborg"

This wonderful portrait of Allen Hasselborg was taken by Frederic A. Wardenburg of Wilmington, Delaware, a serious amateur photographer.  Signed, titled, and dated 1947, by Wardenburg, in pencil.

13.5" X 16.4" silver matt print (mounted on 16" X 20" board).
This photograph is in very good condition with minor defects. The mount is good with small chipping at the corners and edges (will not be seen when matted and framed). Wardenburg entered the University of Colorado at age 14 and graduated with an engineering degree at age 18. He worked for Du Pont as an engineer and chemist, and was later on the board of directors at Du Pont. In his retirement he was an active amateur photographer.

A rare and important Alaska photograph. Probably unique.
