After Whitehorse and Dawson were established and the White Pass Railway was up and running, other technical advances of the age began to appear in the Yukon Territory. Here, at the turn of the century, two officials survey the Whitehorse scene from an early product of Detroit.
Bicycles were a popular means of local transportation. Some early Yukoners actually biked to Dawson, but the best way to Dawson was by the Str. Casca, which was owned by the Casca Trading and Transportation Company, but later purchased by the White Pass River Division.
While Yukon was often regarded as a remote frontier, populated by bewhiskered miners, it was always up to date. In fact Whitehorse possessed one of the first dial telephone exchanges in Canada.
