American Dog Derby

1917 to 1922

Photo Collection Of Early Dog Derby in Chronological Order

1922 (RPPC) Smokey Gaston and Team
1922 (RPPC) Smokey Gaston and Team
Real Photo Postcard (RPPC) with view to northeast towards Warm River Butte and Green Timber taken just east of Ashton. Photo is undated and musher not identified but musher is easily identified as Smokey Gaston by his appearance and by the dogs in his team. Other photos of 1922 show Gaston with this same dog team and this photo is similar to other photos of mushers taken in 1922. It is probably a promotional photo taken in 1922 that was also produced as an RPPC.
