This mixed party returning from Alaska by sidewheeler steamer in 1886 apparently includes the photographer William H. Partridge. While he is not identified on the original boudoir card, the man in front on the right looks very much like Partridge's portrait at Alaska's Digital Archives. His position in the photo lends credence to this theory, as he would have been able to set up the camera and then quickly move to his seat. William traveled to Alaska first, in 1886, and his photographer brother Edward followed him the next year. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
