Note:

Various photographers, many unidentified. Some bear WP Co. monogram of Winter and Pond, and many others can be attributed to Winter and Pond based on format and numbering or captioning style. One photograph marked "Serrott".
Volumes 1 and 3 marked, on later masking tape on cover, "Whipple Alaska", perhaps referring to James Ray Whipple who managed the Sheep Creek operations and was a brother-in-law and business associate of B.L. Thane.
