Older buildings, made of logs, can be seen in the foreground. The bunkhouse on the left is heated with steam, and has electric lights as well as hot and cold running water. A dog team is pulling a sled on the roadway. The mill and power plant are in the background, along with diesel oil tanks from the Fort Norman Arctic well on the Mackenzie River.
