A new volume in the Eyewitness Booklet Series has just been completed by Chris Allan, historian for the National Park Service. It is Eyewitness Series #7: On the Ragged Edge of Empire: Art and Architecture in Sitka, Alaska, by Eadweard Muybridge and John Fuller, 1867-1868. It is a collection of photographs and drawings showing Sitka’s transition from Russian colonial outpost to American town. This serves as a companion to Eyewitness Series #2 about the Alaska transfer ceremony.
All seven booklets in the series are available on the Eyewitness Booklet Series page on the Alaska Historical Society’s webpage under the Publications tab.
