Note: The following is an index of applicable photos available from the Denver Public Library's "Western History Collection" Digital Image Collection. The DPL has done a wonderful thing in allowing people to browse this collection online, but their search leaves something to be desired. This is an effort to make their collection more accessible and useful to Rio Grande enthusiasts. I believe that under the precident set in Field v. Google and other cases, this thumbnailed index pointing to the images on their site falls under fair use. All images are copyright by the Denver Public Library, Western History Collection.
