Lower Entrance to Royal Gorge, Colorado, Looking West
White Border Era: 1915-1930

Unused postcard in Very Good condition
3.5” x 5.5”
Publisher: Van Noy-Interstate Co., Denver, CO

The Royal Gorge, the mother of the Arkansas River, is a gigantic slit or canal in the Rocky Mountains, out from the summits of the lofty peaks to the very foundation stones. At the bottom flows the river and is built the D. & R. G. Railroad, an engineering feat looked upon as well-nigh impossible. A span wide in places, and rising 3,000 feet perpendicular to the clouds, it presents miles of scenery equaled in few places on the globe. The swinging bridge is suspended from immense steel supports buried in the granite walls on either side.

Condition and Grading of Postcards (from The Postcard Price Guide by J.L. Mashburn)

Mint: A perfect card just as it comes from the printing press. No marks or creases and no writing or postmarks. A clean and fresh card. Cards of this grade are seldom seen.

Near Mint: Like Mint but with very light aging or very slight discoloration from being in an album for many years. Not as sharp or crisp.

Excellent: Like mint in appearance with no bends or creases, or rounded or blunt corners. May be postally used or unused and may have writing and postmark only on the address side. A clean, fresh card on the picture side.

Very Good: Corners may be just a bit blunt or rounded. Almost undetectable crease or bend that does not detract from overall appearance of the picture side. May have writing or postal use on address side. A very collectible card.

Good: Corners may be lightly blunt/rounded with noticeable bends or creases. May be postally used or have writing on address side. Less than Very Good.

Fair: Card is intact. Excess soil, stains, creases, writing, or cancellation may affect picture. Could be a scarce card that is difficult to find in any condition.
