Description

Postcard with a colored view of an Argentine central railroad train and a group of people at the top of Mount McClellan in Colorado. View is looking north. The note on the back reads "Being a little downcast and homesick (maybe) we will come up here to the Summit of Mt. McClellan and get a breath of light fresh air - and go home in a basket - as it is one way by which this peak is reached - By the "Baske[t] Route." on a trolly - very interesting and more exciting than a rollar coaster or figure 8 - suspended in midair as though you were up in a ballon" Sent from Denver, Colorado to Miss Ida Michels in Detroit, Mich.
