Consists of a photograph album containing 31 silver gelatin photographs documenting the Gold Rush in Nome, Alaska, which began in 1899. Photographs were taken by Otto Daniel Goetze of the Alaska Photo Company (A. P. Company), who signed and captioned many of the images in the negative. Photographs include town scenes showing active businesses, mining scenes along inland streams, camps along the beach, and beached ships such as the wrecked Skookum. There are also a few individual and group portraits, primarily of white settlers and miners but one image depicts Alaska Natives. Many businesses are readily identifiable, including Dench Laundry, Golden Gate Hotel, Palace Restaurant, Columbia Theater, The Grotto, G. H. McPherron Merchandise, and others. Mining areas include Glacer Creek (likely Glazier Creek), Dry Creek, Mining on Nome Beach, Snow Gulch, Rock Creek, and several others. Of note is a view from Circle City, Alaska, on the Yukon River with the Circle City Saloon, showing patrons as well as the the riverboat Hannah docked right outside the saloon.
