  Website for Unga Corporation History page contains an old photo of Unga village. Site also has maps, history, etc.
 July 8, 1899 Letter A short letter from John Muir, famous American Naturalist, written after sailing along the Alaskan Peninsula from Unga and Sand Point. Scroll down this Sierra Club web-site page to see Muir's description of the region. He describes the volcanoes as being "as thick as haycocks on our alfalfa field in a wet year".
 c 1900 Old Unga photos Photographs of Unga Island, Alaska, circa 1900, including the Apollo gold mine and several photos with unidentified people. As the 1900 census indicates that there were only about 175 people in the main Unga village, with slightly more in the Apollo Mine and fish plant, it's not unlikely that Edward knew some of these people.
  Bob and Nancy's photos of Unga Bob and Nancy von Konsky's photographs of Unga Alaska as it appears in modern times will be included here soon!
August 9, 2001 Modern Unga photos Photographs of Unga Alaska as it appears in modern times. Of interest is the headstone at the bottom of the page. I haven't checked if anyone has attempted to locate Edward's gravestone. If not, we should go back and have a look!
