Alyeska Artifacts… a website for sharing photos and information about the artifacts of Alyeska Pipeline Service Company.

Examples include Alyeska jackets, coffee mugs, caps, awards, pins, pens, posters, decals, and other good stuff.

  • An item created by humans usually for a practical purpose, and typically of cultural or historical interest.
