Wonderful cabinet card view taken at Rainbow Falls in Manitou Springs, Colorado. Probably dating to around the 1880’s. This one is rather large at 8″ x 5″. Featuring a group of 11 individuals posed on a large rock at the base of the falls with the falls themselves visible in the back ground. Two young children sit in the foreground with the young lady wearing a large straw hat to protect her from the sun. Several men are equipped walking sticks to assist in attacking the steep terrain while one man strums his guitar and peers off into the distance as if he is in mid song. Great early view that you don’t often see form these south western states. An old pencil inscription on the reverse reads “Taken at Rainbow Falls”. Back marked out of Manitou Springs, Colorado.
