Juneau Wharf...

(Click to enlarge)

Here is a busy photograph of Juneau Company Wharf believed to have been taken in 1898. This is the wharf where Soapy Smith was killed. On the right you can see the roof of the warehouse where the vigilantes held their meeting that was to decide once and for all what should be done with the Soap Gang.
