Museum Memories: Nov. 4, 2017

Another shot of First street in Cordova, Alaska at midnight on the summer solstice. Classic cars once again and see how Cordovans for at least a century have been taking pictures of Mt. Eccles and the Lady and the Bear!

Similar streetlights glimmer at the corner of First and Council but not much else is the same today in our little town. Again, the 1963 fire devastated the wooden, classic buildings on this block.

This photo came from the archives and collections of the Cordova Historical Society housed within the museum. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays.

Stop by to see our new travelling exhibit in the Copper River Gallery, “Harry Potter’s Magical World.”
