Lloyd Valentine Winter (1866-1945) and Edwin Percy Pond (1872-1943) operated the Winter and Pond photography studio in Juneau, Alaska for almost 50 years from circa 1893 until 1943. Their work included documenting the Klondike Gold Rush and Tlingit Native Alaskans. Winter and Pond's business included a mail-order catalog of photographs and contributing a series of Alaskan photographs to the photography publishing company Underwood and Underwood. After the death of E. Percy Pond, Winter sold the business to Francis Harrison who kept the company open until 1956.
