Photographer's Note

During the heyday of prohibition when the west was wild and wooly, a historic red light district flourished along Ketchikan Creek, right in the present downtown. Bootleggers filled orders by skiff to trapdoors under these houses, and the trail to this district is still named Married Man's Trail. Dolly, the most famous sole proprietor of one of these establishments, was beloved by some in this city and operated until the mid-50's, if you can imagine that. Today, tourists come to visit the little shops along the boardwalk and watch the salmon returning to spawn during the late summer.
