Dedicating U.S. Flag on White Pass Summit, Alaska / White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad

Black and white undated glass plate negative image of a ceremony dedicating the U.S. flag on the White Pass summit, Alaska, probably along the route of the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad. A few women stand, holding the outstretched flag, with all stars visible, on a wooden platform built on a rocky slope. Male dignitaries, one speaking, stand near a small obelisk behind the women.
