Jeff. Smiths Parlor and the Skaguay Street Cars
Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park

Historic photographs show the unique dime museum and funky customized tour buses created by inventor, entrepreneur and showman Martin Itjen. Itjen came to Skagway for the Klondike Gold Rush and did a variety of odd jobs before developing his tour business. Itjen developed Jeff. Smiths Parlor as the star destination of his tours and outfitted the museum with animated figures of Soapy Smith, Dangerous Dan McGrew and Lady Lou.
