D&RG Souvenir Folding Postcard

This postcard folder was issued before the Denver & Rio Grande became the Denver & Rio Grande Western, which means before 1920. It is probably from before 1909, when the Western Pacific (which was financed by the Rio Grande) was completed, as the two railroads did joint advertising after that.

The folder contains 22 color lithographs that actually reproduce the colors of Colorado gorges and mountains pretty successfully. As usual with postcard folders, I present it in three pages as the front unfolds in such a way that either the cover or one of the postcards is obscured.
