Real Photo Postcard, Early 20th Century Interior View of a Colorado Railroad Station

Real photo postcard showing the interior of a Western railroad depot with considerable character and detail. Very mild crease to one corner, a touch of wear to the edges; near fine. Although someone has written "Texas RR" on the back, and there are signs posted relating to the Denver & Rio Grande and to the Fort Worth and Denver Railway, we suspect this station was actually in southern Colorado, given that there is a print of Sheridan's Ride on the wall (a Union general on a Texas wall seems unlikely at this time). Among the objects visible in the photo are an elkhorn chair, footstool and table; at least eight taxidermy specimens (elk, deer, antelope, bighorn sheep, buffalo calf, eagle, owl); photographs and prints; and a railroad map, ticket agent's sign, and rack of timetables.
