Le Dawson Daily News

The Dawson Daily News moved into this building in 1910, the sole survivor among 7 gold rush newspapers. It provided Dawson City with a window to the outside world and remained a profitable business until the early 1920s. Thereafter, it was essentially a one-person operation and shut down for good in 1954. By then valueless as a business, its true value was as a repository of Klondike history, faithfully recorded since 1899.

Le Dawson Daily News s'est install? dans cet immeuble en 1910. Il ?tait alors le seul survivant des sept journaux fond pendant la ru?e vers l'or. Le journal offrait ? Dawson City des nouvelles de l'ext?rieur et est demeur? profitable jusqu'au d?but des ann?es 20/ Par la suite, le journal n'?tait plus essentiellement que l'entreprise d'une seule personne. Le dernier num?ro a ?t? publi? en 1954. D lors, le journal n'avait plus de valeur commerciale, mais il garde une valeur historique en tant que t?moin de l;histoire du Klondike, qu'il a fid?lement consign?e ? partier de 1899.
