The Cripple Creek Short Line Trip is the Most Wonderful Sight-Seeing Trip in America

The folder is in mostly good shape, but have some extra folding marks, and starting to tear at the folding. It is an old souvenir folder with hand colored pictures from somewhere between, oh, I would guess 1904 to 1915.

It mention the famous article by Julian Street about Cripple Creek, and that dates this folder to after end of November 1914.

It has 3 maps in it showing the route in more or less artistic views, also has 12 pictures where 9 of them is more or less in the area around Rock Creek and St. Peter's. Then 3 more is from the District it self with 1 of Altman and the other two on the west slope of Bull Hill showing a shot down towards the gulch where the Economic Mill was, and the other shows mines at this side of Bull Hill.

But, it is really about the trip along The Short Line (Colorado Springs & Cripple Creek District Railway, C.S. & C.C.D. Ry.)

I hope you enjoy these pictures, it was a great joy when I got this years back, and I love that I am able to share it here for all to see/find :-)

Enjoy this little trip back to yesterday!
