Description

Image shows an easterly winter view of Palmer taken from Bugge's hill. John Bugge's homestead field is in foreground with fence along the "Wasilla road". Buildings are evident in middle ground and people can be seen walking in the street. Scaffolding is still in place on the school building and the water tower is not yet erected. Steam rises from the power house and white smoke comes from a railroad engine. A strip of forest is in far middle ground and mountains dominate beyond.
