The Denver, South Park,and Pacific Historical Society has accumulated a large quantity of photos from the early years of our favorite narrow gauge railroad.

In the interest of making these historical photos available to all, we will now offer high quality, high resolution prints of much of the Society’s collection. All pictures feature very sharp detail unless otherwise noted.

Presented here are low resolution examples of a few of the photos we are offering.  Be assured that the photos you receive will be of the highest quality.  New prints will be added periodicaly so be sure to keep checking back.  We will date when photos are added or changed so you can tell what is new.

Sizes and prices are as marked on the downloadable order form.

While we have attempted to keep the price as low as possible, sale of these prints is a major fund raising source for the work of the Society.  It will enable us to continue to preserve historical items as well as contribute to the restoration of what remains of the lines that all became the Colorado & Southern narrow gauge routes.

Temporarily, it will be necessary to mail order your prints until we see if there will be enough interest in these items to warrant a full shopping cart type site.

To order photographic prints, send your order showing print name, size(s) wanted and your check to:

Kokomo, Colorado

This is a well known view of Kokomo, but you have probably not seen it this clearly.  The view is to the north, circa 1890.  Denver, Leadville & Gunnison eastbound train includes engine 115, baggage 1322 and coaches 65 and 133. 

The train is crossing the D&RG track, with the remains of the White Quail smelter behind the last coach and the town of Kokomo/Recen in the background.
