Large Glass Plate Negatives Depicting the “Burro Brigade.”

[Manitou Springs, Colorado]: [circa 1900]. Five glass plate negatives measuring 6 ½” x 8 ½”. Four are very good plus or better with minor imperfections, one is good: cracked and inartfully repaired with tape.

Several images of travelers just before, or after, an ascent of Pike's Peak, using Mantiou Springs' “Burro Brigade.” One stunning image shows a group just outside the business' store front, where a woman can be seen in a ticket booth, and to its left are three broadsides that might be readable with a higher resolution scan. Very good +. Item #2777
