Printed slip on verso: "Clear Creek Canyon. This canyon is traversed by the Colorado Central Rail Road with an ascent of 106 to 175 feet to the mile. The road is firmly and safely built, although it has sharper curves and more of them than any road in the country. The scenery is bold and magnificent, and no written description will convey an adequate idea of its sublime grandeur, equaling the most noted localities in California" Good. Item #040556

"A railroad bridge, the first wooden one, crosses Elk Creek, and is barely visible behind a leafy tree in this view of Clear Creek Canyon, Colorado" [Ronzio Collection description]. The Chamberlain studio was at the corner of Larimer & 15th Streets, Denver.
