1500 Main barracks, Whittier, Alaska. Photographer Gene Adoline was
an enlisted man in the Army at Ft. Richardson in 1954. Of his photograph,
he recalls, "Port Whittier Barracks had connecting tunnels which were used
during the months that snow was bountiful. At the time this picture
was taken (1954) the army would not let photographs be taken of this area
as it was a very strategic area and the mountains behind these barracks
were loaded with gun emplacements. Almost like Gibraltar."
