    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $65 and take approximately 4 weeks.

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and give support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself. Backing is what we recommend for framing, and for any poster needing restoration.

    In 1924 Pacific Gas and Electric Company built the New Bullars Dam across the Yukon River in California's Sierra Nevada. The next spring salmon swimming up river to their native spawning grounds encountered the newly-erected dam; tens of thousands of dead fish piled up at New Bullard's base. --- To alleviate the stench, workers doused the rotten mass with kerosene and lit it ablaze.
