An Alaska Transfer eight-horse team hauls freight down Adams Street in the early 1900s. Alaska Transfer was started by Fred Laubner and Charlie Christensen in 1905. Four years later they sold it to Al Davis and H. V. Hoben. Their motto was “We move anything, anytime, any place.” In addition to providing freight services, the business also delivered coal and ice. Alaska Transfer continued to operate until the early 1950s.
