Nestled in the shadow of Pikes Peak, amidst dazzling scenery of the Rocky Mountains and the Front Range, is the town of Colorado Springs, Colorado. Vintage black and white and hand-tinted postcards from the 1900s to the 1950s take readers back in time to tour Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region. Sites that made the town famous are featured here. Take a room at the Broadmoor Hotel or stay at the Antlers Hotel, where Katherine Lee Bates wrote the words to "America the Beautiful." Wander among fantastic sandstone monoliths in the Garden of the Gods and tour through Glen Eyrie, home of Colorado Springs founder General William Jackson Palmer. Then hike through North Cheyenne Cañon, see the magnificent cascades at Seven Falls, drive up Cheyenne Mountain and visit the Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun, and climb to the summit of Pikes Peak. All this adventure can be enjoyed through 289 vintage postcard images brought to your favorite easy chair.
