Black and white view of Front Street in Dawson City. The Portland Restaurant is visible at left. A packer, circulating library and cafe are visible at right. Packed sleds are visible in the street. A large number of men are either walking in the street or along the boardwalk. Banners are strung across the street.

Note that despite the title of the photograph, this was not taken in December. The lack of snow on the streets, the dress of many of the patrons visible and the abundance of light suggest that this was taken in either late fall or early spring.
