piano bar #4

before Diamond Tooth Gertie's became a casino, the music hall building was called the Arctic Brotherhood Hall...and this was its piano. more than a century old, the piano must have been shipped in by steamboat. it now stands in the KIAC performance space & occasionally gets a good jazz workout. so far, this is the only piano in Dawson that doesn't have caribou antlers above it...but it does have a nifty brocade cover to keep it toasty on cold winter nights.
