Mammoth Albumen Photograph of Pikes Peak

Stunning mammoth albumen photograph showing Pikes Peak in the background (though faintly) through Gate Rock. The photograph shows a rocky landscape with a covered carriage being pulled by two horses tied up to a fence post in the foreground. The carriage is surrounded by towering rock formations, including Gate Rock and Pikes Peak, which are both well-known landmarks in the American West. The photograph is a beautiful and evocative image that captures the rugged beauty of this region. It is a testament to Jackson's skill as a photographer and his ability to convey the majesty and drama of the American West through his images.

Title and credit to W. H. Jackson & Co. written in the lower margin of negative.
