With Nature in the Rockies

There’s no date on this brochure, but the centerfold map has no hint of a rail line from Dotsero to Denver, which means it was published before 1932, when the Denver & Rio Grande Western began building that line. The 20-page brochure has nine full-page, hand-colored photos on the inside in addition to the two paintings on the cover. The centerfold map is also very colorful.

There are also fourteen black-and-white photos, most of them covering just half a page each. Other than photo captions, the brochure has very little text, mainly limited to a listing of Rio Grande passenger agents.
