Trolley Postcards: Mountain States

Downtown Ft. Collins, CO. This was the last of Colorado's original streetcar lines to operate. The system consisted of three lines, all operated by single-truck Birney cars, which met downtown at regular intervals. It was abandoned in the early 50's, but the Ft. Collins Municipal Railway has recently been revived as an operating vintage trolley line.

The picturesqueness of this view was not lost on the original sender, who noted in a message addressed to a correspondent New York: "With these cards a penny each, I should carry a camera 5000 miles?"

Soda Spring and Old Cliff House, Manitou (Springs), CO. Tourists are enjoying the mountain air in an open car.

16th St., Denver.

Cherrelyn horsecar, Denver. On this line the horse pulled the car uphill, but got to ride for the trip down.

Walker Bank Building, Salt Lake City, UT. "Tallest Bldg. between Missouri River and Pacific Coast".

The D&RGW and WP Depot, Salt Lake City; here's a closeup of the streetcars:

This is from a folder of Utah postcards with images from around the state and from along the D&RGW line in particular, of which here's a sampler:

Black Rock, on the Great Salt Lake.

Ruby Castle, along the D&RGW line near the Colorado/Utah border.
