These color prints, based on photographs, are from a souvenir booklet sold on board trains of the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railway in the early 1900s.  They feature feature views of the Rocky Mountains the traveler would see on the journey.  Many of the prints feature railroad-related views - trains, stations, tracks, bridges.

The booklet served as a guide for the traveler explaining points of interest.  For example, here is part of the narrative for Castle Rock:

      "Thirty-three miles from Denver, the tourist will observe, to the left,
      beautiful Castle Rock, one of Colorado's landmarks in the days of
      the old wagon trains across the prairies, before the time of the
      steam roads."

All prints are provided with a copy of the accompanying text page and map showing the route of the Denver and Rio Grande.
