On offer is a super, original photo album compiled by an unknown traveller memorializing a trip taken to Colorado in 1919, [there are a few photos from 1912, 1918 and 1920] mostly of the Estes Park, Denver and Greeley Colorado. Of particular interest to historians and collectors of the area are some great 'bird's eye views' of Denver and photos of the town of Greeley. Other highlights include a long shot photo of an Indian war dance in the Garden of the Gods. [There is an inventory of the photos later in the listing.] There is also a photo of the famous Stanley Hotel in Estes which we believe is unique. There is even a 4 photo "panorama" shot consisting showing an unnamed valley and mountains in the background but believed to be the Rocky Mountains. In this panorama it also shows their car with several people standing beside it. Fortunately there are handwritten titles for most of the photos.

The 53 page album contains over 115 photos, all but three, attached with the black photo corners plus they seem to be glued too. The photos range from fair to great [two are bent] but overall G+. Then two loose photo postcards in the back. One shows a group of people in the Manitou Park Colorado tram car and one of a group of people standing by a river. It has "transferred" stamped on the front and back. Finally a snap shot which shows a woman in a beautiful dress and it's marked "Photo by Westcott" and on the back is written "1921 Phyllis Burgoin H. S. Junior H. S. Banquet Dress." Most of the photos measure about 3¼" x 5¼" with a few smaller than that. The album itself measures about 7 ¼" x 11 ¾" and the covers are in great shape but we note a hint of mustiness. Overall G.
