Biographical / Historical

Lloyd Valentine Winter (1866-1945) and Edwin Percy Pond (1872-1943), of the photography company, Winter and Pond, were prominent Alaskan photographers. In 1893, Winter came to Juneau from San Francisco and entered a partnership with George M. Landerkin, known as Landerkin and Winter. In 1894, Landerkin was bought out by Winter's long time friend, E.P. Pond.

Winter and Pond operated their Juneau-based curio and photography studio for over 50 years, providing a unique reflection of the state in the early 20th century. This partnership continued until Pond's death at age 71 in 1943. In 1945, two years after the death of E.P. Pond, Lloyd Winter turned the business over to Francis Harrison, who maintained the Winter and Pond Co. until it closed in 1956. [Portions from PCA 87.] Other Winter and Pond collections include PCA 21, PCA 87, PCA 316.
