Scrapbook made by Libbie Maltbie following a vacation trip to Alaska in August, 1909. Maltbie and her husband, Arthur L. Maltbie, and two friends, Hiland P. and Mary Lockwood, travelled to Alaska on the steamship City of Seattle, leaving Seattle, Washington, on August 4, 1909, passing among the islands of southeastern Alaska to Skagway, and returning on the Pacific side, stopping at Sitka, and reaching Seattle on August 15. The scrapbook contains mostly postcards, printed illustrations, and photographs taken by Arthur L. Maltbie, showing towns visited, buildings, natural features, and Indian totem poles and other aspects of Indian life. Photographs, some with the travelers pictured, are captioned in holograph by Libbie Maltbie. Also present are a printed map showing steamship routes, published by the Pacific Coast Steamship Company; a few printed items relating to the City of Seattle; and a narrative written by Maltbie, holograph, 15 p., briefly describing the trip.
