(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 Pikes Peak (Alt. 14,109 Ft.) from Pikes Peak Avenue in Colorado Springs (Alt. 6,072 Ft.), CO.
"Pikes Peak Avenue is a broad and stately street pointing directly toward the Peak from which it is named that looms above it. At the west it terminates at the Antlers Hotel whose graceful towers form a perfect "sight" like those on a rifle for the view of Pikes Peak. In the summer season it is thronged with visitors of every station in life from every state and country, for the Avenue is the center of tourist activity. Few who have traversed its broad pavements will forget it as it is one of the most impressive street spectacles in the world."
"Stayed here a couple of days in 1947 Aug.", is written on the back.
The postcard is used and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips, a few small stains.
