Biographical / Historical

Lloyd Valentine Winter (1866-1945) and Edwin Percy Pond (1872-1943) were Alaskan photographers. Lloyd Winter arrived in Juneau in 1893, a prosperous mining community, from San Francisco. He opened a photographic studio in partnership with George M. Landerking. In 1894 Edwin Percy Pond, Winter's longtime friend, bought out Landerking. They have served as official Alaskan photographers for the Alaska-Yukon Pacific Exposition in Seattle in 1909. Winter & Ponds operated their photo studio in Juneau for the next 50 years, until Pond's death in 1943. They documented the growth and decline of the mining industry in Alaska and Canada and had a big contribution to our understanding of Tlingit Indian culture by photographing, 350 images, the traditional social customs and cultural activities. After Pond's death, Winter turned the business over to Francis Harrison who maintained the Winter & Pond Company until 1956. All the original glass plates negatives and nitrate negatives were donated to the Alaskan State Library in 1981 by William Jorgenson, who kept them after the store has closed.
