Corley, W.D., Illustrated by: B&W Photos  
THE CORLEY MOUNTAIN HIGHWAY TO CRIPPLE CREEK

Publisher: No Publisher Colorado Springs.
Folded brochure with B&W photo and red print on front panel. About 6-3/8 by 3-1/2 inches folded, opens to almost 14 inches with eight panes (four per side) containing nice B&W photos of the road and views (including late teens and early 20s automobiles) . The piece is not dated, but autos depicted are from the 1920s. Originally built as a short-line railroad which failed, the route was purchased by W.D. Corley and turned into a tourist toll road called the Corley Mountain Highway, which he operated until he turned it over to the Forest Service in 1939, a precondition of his original purchase. The route fell into disrepair in the 1960s but apparently has been, or is in the process of becoming, repaired and restored. This brochure is in very good condition with a faint corner crease and some light wear at folds. EPHEM 2035 No Edition Stated Very Good Brochure
