ROYAL GORGE

Just west of Canon City, Fremont County, Colorado

On the Arkansas River

 

 

From the back: "This bridge carries track suspended above stream because of narrow gorge. It is one of the best known engineering wonders of the world."

From the back: "Panorama of the Royal Gorge and world's highest bridge from south rim observation pavilion."

From back: "A new sensation is available for visitors to the Royal Gorge in the new incline railway running up and down Telephone Gulch from the D.&R.G.W.R.R. at the Hanging Bridge to the top of the Suspension Bridge. This incline will carry two steel cars at 21 passenger capacity and will allow travelers on the railroad who stop over an easy but thrilling trip to the wonderful scenes at the rim of the gorge."

From Bank: ' The Royal Groge illuminated by floodlight at night, showing the Arkansas River, the world's highest bridge and giving a new aspect to the impressiveness and beauty of the mighty gorge."
