About This Image

The Steamer Queen chugs in front of Alaska's majestic Muir Glacier, trailing a plume of black smoke behind it--in high contrast to the icy white terrain.

La Roche was born in Pennsylvania, but operated out of Seattle actively from around 1890–1902. He won a gold medal for his work photographing the Alaska-Yukon Exposition in 1909.

John Muir, for whom the glacier is named, brought this natural wonder to public attention after his expeditions in 1878 and 1880.
