Le magasin Harrington

[English]
Like other grocers at the turn of the century, Harrington provided a cosmopolitan clientele with every conceivable foodstuff, from beans to truffles. This was made possible by the coincidence of improved transportation systems with new food storage technologies, such as evaporation, canning, and artificial cold storage. Linked to the rest of the world during summer by rail and steamer, Dawson City merchants provided perishable foods year-round, all at a price of 2 to 3 times that "outside".

[French]
Comme la plupart des ?piceries du tournant du si?cle, l'?picerie Harrington offrait ? une client?le cosmopolite tous les aliments imaginables que ce soit des f?ves ou des truffes. Ce service a ?t? rendu possible gr?ce ? l'am?lioration des moyens de transport et ? la mise au point de nouvelles techologies de conservation des aliments, telles que l'?vaporation, les mise en conserve et la conservation frigorifique. Avant acc au reste du monde durant l'?t? gr?ce aux trains et aux bateaux ? vapeur, les commer?ants de Dawson City fournissaient des aliments p?rissable ? longueur d'ann?e, ? des prix de deux ? trois fois sup?rieurs ? ceux de "l'exeterieur".
