  • Rio Grande Southern Album (Ronfor)

Full colour photographic album of the last years of the Rio Grande Southern narrow gauge. It is a fond look back at a railroad that threaded its way through the towering peaks of Colorado's silver district, defying both time & Nature to survive into the era of colour photography. Built during the silver boom of 1891, its prosperity was short-lived. The Depression brought bankruptcy. Government support came during World War II, as the RGS hauled uranium ore for the first atomic bomb. 1989 Ed Crist, Inc. Softcover. VG. 38pp. 22-JPIX-IATA
