Glencove Inn on Pikes Peak Auto Highway - Colorado Springs, CO - Postcard, c. 1940s


(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original vintage Sanborn Souvenir Co. postcard from the 1940s. It shows a view of Glencove Inn on the Pikes Peak Auto Highway in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

"Glen Cove, alt. 11,425 ft., is a delightful spot just at timberline on the Pikes Peak Auto Highway. Ringed by snow flecked cliffs, dotted with great Pines, watered by tiny streamlets it is a little paradise among the crags, a last outpost of trees and vegetation. Here is situated the main stopping point on the highway with an Inn for the accommodations of travelers."

"Hello Donna. We stopped here for water. Grandma.", reads the note written on the back. 

The postcard is used and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips, postmark ink transfer on the front.
