Open house at Berton House

Yesterday, Thursday, August 16, 2007, was the "Authors on Eighth" celebration here in Dawson City, Yukon. As part of it, Carolyn and I hosted an open house at Berton House. Some bald guy gave a tour. The gentleman leaning against the doorway on the left is Dan Davidson, editor of the Klondike Sun newspaper.

Among those stopping by was local historian (and legend!) Dick North, who does the interpretive shows at the Jack London cabin, just up Eighth Avenue from Berton House.

After the tour, there was a ceremony on the lawn at which prizes were given for the "Authors on Eighth" writing contest, which Rob and Carolyn had judged. Rob gave an impassioned talk about Berton House.
