SS Keno

It was hard to get up north in the early 20th century. One of the fastest methods of travel was up the Yukon on the SS Keno. It transported silver, zinc and lead ore from the mines. On 25 August 1960 the Keno left Whitehorse to sail downstream to Dawson City. In doing so she became the last of the Yukon’s sternwheeler steamers to navigate the Yukon River under her own power.
