American Dog Derby

1917 to 1922

Photo Collection Of Early Dog Derby in Chronological Order

Personal photo with view to southwest at interection of 6th and Main Streets of unidentified musher who appears to have completed race. Ashton's pedistal clock gives us the time of 3:30 PM. Mushers started at different times and raced against the clock. This photo was taken and preserved by Lida Phillips of Ashton and is one in a group of six photos that can all be dated to 1921 by being compared to other dated photos.
