If you enjoy learning about the way things use to be done.. you may enjoy this book called

Next up in this series of videos is Placer mining operations 1960s

John Baker pulls his dog Queenie on a sled, checks out his Aeronca Champion airplane during a winter wind storm in Southcentral Alaska, digs the airplane out of the snow after the storm, and later examines several aircraft damaged by high winds at Lake Hood Seaplane Base in Anchorage, Alaska. John Baker filmed the sequence during the late 1960s and added narration in about 2000 (Color/Sound/16mm film). This sequence contains excerpts from AAF-16367 from the John Baker collection held by the Alaska Film Archives, a unit of the Alaska and Polar Regions Collections & Archives Department in the Elmer E. Rasmuson Library, University of Alaska Fairbanks. For more information please contact the Alaska Film Archives.
