Alaska State Ferry Matanuska
1 of 26 from Nigei Island to Namu


Matanuska is a valley in Alaska and the name of a glacier. I must have been getting a little bored to be taking photos of ships that pass by, but it is a nice looking ship.

My family lived there when I was a child. It was a great place to live. My parents and numerous relatives were employeed in the canary and the netloft. At that time the village was segrated into 3 areas. Actually 4 areas. There was the "Indian village, White side, Japtown and what we called Tunaville." I have fond memories of the place. I only hope that someone could create pictures of the old village. I have the memories and sadly no ability to create the images.

What a beautiful picture! My grandfather was the Chief Mate on that ship for many years! Brought tears to my eyes as I remembered being in the captain's chair on my grandfather's lap! Thank you for sharing! :)
