Dangerous Dan

Michał Kozłowski

MacBride Museum on 1st Avenue, figures made of mahogany and Wooly Mammoth ivory have been arranged inside a glass box labeled "Malamute Saloon" to depict the action in the last scene of Robert Service’s poem “The Shooting of Dan McGrew” in which Dan McGrew is shot by “the man from the creeks.”

Pitched on his head, and pumped full of lead, was Dangerous Dan McGrew / While the man from the creeks lay clutched to the breast of the lady that's known as Lou.
