TITLE: Lane Family Photograph Collection



Dates: 1910-1946

Extent: 394 items, one linear foot

Language and Scripts: The collection is in English

Names of creators: Max Manger, Strye Photo Studio, P.S. Hunt, G. McCreary

Administrative/biographical history:
This collection may contain unrelated groups of photos. Several photo processing
envelopes containing negatives are from Fairbanks photo studios and have the name
“Lane” penciled on them, and two postal envelopes were addressed to Harry or Mrs.
Lane [see Box 2, Folder 5, “Ephemera”]. Harry Lee Lane, born July 1, 1887 on Prince
Edward Island, Canada, came to Alaska in 1916 and worked as a timekeeper for the
Alaska Railroad in Anchorage.1 He enlisted in the Canadian Army and lost both legs
during World War I in France. He returned to Anchorage and the railroad and then
spent 1925 and 1926 working for the Fairbanks Exploration Company in Fairbanks.
Many of the photos in this collection are apparently from this period in the Interior.
Harry and his wife Eleanor Emma Lane owned the Pioneer Hotel (see .9) in Fairbanks at
some point, left Alaska, and returned in the 1930s.2 In Anchorage, the Lanes purchased
the Crescent Hotel [see .101 and .106] at Fourth Avenue and C Street in 1933, renaming

it the Lane Hotel in 1939. Harry Lane retired from business in 1951 and died in
Anchorage in 1956. According to Eleanor Lane’s obituary the couple left no surviving

It is unknown what connection, if any, there was between the Lanes and Mrs. Myrtle
Lane, who lived in Fairbanks before coming to Anchorage where she managed the Dahl
Rooms.3 A caption on the back of .29 mentions “Myrtle.” Photos .111 and .12 are
associated with Oscar Dahl who ran a hotel in Seward.4 A postcard (.111) sent in 1922
from Dahl to Eleanor E. Nelson in Fairbanks may show a connection, although Eleanor
Lane was presumably married to Harry at the time and Eleanor Nelson may be another
person. A 1944 wedding portrait of a young couple (.274) is inscribed with the Lane
Hotel name. Perhaps this photo collection was found in the hotel? The Lane Hotel
burned in September 1966 and fourteen people died in an arson fire that caused the
most fire fatalities in Anchorage’s history
5. Lane Street in Mountain View is named for
Harry Lane

Scope and content description:
The collection consists of black-and-white photographic prints and negatives. Most
photos are of individuals or groups in outdoor Interior Alaskan settings, engaged in
activities such as fishing, camping, mining, and travelling by automobile or river
steamer. Few individuals are identified by full name. There are good photos of
Athapascan bark canoes at a summer fish camp (.126-.129). A few photos are of
Anchorage, including boats at the mouth of Ship Creek. Box 2, Folder 3 contains family
photos that were taken outside Alaska; again, most individuals are not identified with
full names.

Arrangement: Topical. Series 1: Interior Alaska. Series 2: Interior automobile trip. Series
3: Anchorage-Curry-Seward-Nenana. Series 4: Interior rivers & villages. Series 5:
