Knik Hall, the only larger building remaining from the town of Knik, AK [which thrived in the 1895-1910 era and was eclipsed by Anchorage].  There are some photos of old Knik at the Vilda online archive.  Can also find some images of this building [apparently a former pool hall] during relocation and rebuilding, around 1970.  Kind of a good example of vernacular pioneer era construction.  [The original Knik townsite was mined for gravel and really isn’t there anymore.]

pagoda restaurant sign

My 2003 photo of sign at the former Pagoda Restaurant, 5th Ave. and A St., downtown Anchorage.
The building it was in [originally a small house — municipal tax records list that it was built in 1950, but I suspect it’s older than that] is [amazingly] still there, though it has been unoccupied since its brief reincarnation as a coffee shop.  The former restaurant owner apparently continued to live in the house for a few years after the restaurant closed.

Hope Hwy. rest stop

10 or 12 miles in, the Hope Highway dips down to close to the high water mark of Turnagain Arm.  I stopped at this little pull-off on the way in to take this photo before the Gull Rock hike.  [And on the way back, stopped at the same place to eat two hard-boiled eggs!]

This 25 ft wide little place on 6th Ave. near ‘A’ St. used to be a Japanese restaurant called Yakitori.  Recently Tito’s Gyros struggled along here for awhile, and now it is vacant.

Interesting ribbon cloud over the end of Turnagain Arm, on the way to Homer earlier this month.
