    Spectacular dusk view of busy 4th Avenue in Alaska's largest city. The huge modern McKinley Apartments Building is prominent against the rugged backdrop of the snow capped CHUGACH Mountain Range.

    Mailed from Anchorage, Alaska to Mr. & Mrs. Alonzo Palmer of Chula Vista, California on March 26, 1962:

    Hi
    Leaving here on my way to Fairbanks - 27° below zero there. Juneau, Sitka, etc. Anxious to get back.
    Love,
    Dot

      This entire street was ravaged by the massive earthquake of 1964. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:AlaskaQuake-FourthAve.jpg

      It's amazing that the McKinley Apartment block survive the '64 quake.
