L'entrep?t de la Northern Commercial Co.

[English]
One of the complex of four warehouses that covered an entire city block in 1898, this and numerous other warehoused like it provided the life blood of Dawson City. For four months a year, the river was open for shipping and in the ensuing flurry of activity, the warehouses were loaded with every conceivable item of merchandise. Over the next 8 months, virtually cut off from the rest of the world, Dawson City drew on these supplies to satisfy the needs and wants of a modern metropolis.

[French]
Cet entrep?t faisait partie d'un conplexe de quatre entrep?ts qui s'?tendait sur un quartier complet de la ville en 1898. Ces entrep?ts, et bien d'autres du m?me genre, constituaient des ?l?ments vitaux de Dawson City. Pendant quatre mois, la rivi?re ?tait ouverte ? la navigation et, dans le tourbillon d'activit qui s'ensuivait, on remplissait les entrep?ts de toutes les marchandises imaginables. Au cours des huis mois suivants, pratiquement coup du reste du monde, les ridents de la m?tropole moderne qu'?tait devenue Dawson City comptaient sur ces rerves pour combler leurs besoins.
