The Steamer Keno, (above) was the last of the famous Paddlewheelers on the Yukon River system. Our editor/publisher Jerry W. Bird was a crew member on the Keno for two summers. He was also a longshoreman for the British Yukon Navigation Company fleet, working alongside mostly native crews at Mayo Landing and Dawson City. The historic river fleet sailed between Nome, Alaska, in the far north to Dawson City, and from there to the railhead at Whitehorse (1890s to the 1950s). See Klondike.
