Olnes Outhouse--Olnes, Alaska
Pen & Ink on Bristol Board, Image size 4"x 5.25"

The town of Olnes (no longer in existence) used to be a stop on the Tanana Valley Railroad. It
was a supply point for surrounding mines and the beginning of the stage line to Tolovana. Now,
all that remains of the original townsite is this outhouse. It has a wood-shake roof with
decorative ridge-line, iron fillagree decoration at the gables, and a diamond shaped window.
The inside was decorated with red brocade wall paper, the same type of wall paper I found in a
cabin at Old Chatanika, 13 miles away.
