Original Monument Entrance

Post by CanyonmanClark » Thu Mar 15, 2018 1:40 pm

In the 1937 brochure to Death Valley, there's a photo of the original monument entrance. Anyone know where this would have been? To me the terrain looks similar to that of around the Inn, but the Inn was opened in 1927. So I really don't know. Also

Check it out. What do you think?

Here's the link to the brochure. http://npshistory.com/brochures/deva/1937.pdf

Holy heck, thanks a million for sharing that PDF! Beyond cool ... I've got a copy saved on my computer now for future reference.

Brochure says three checking stations at the time: Daylight Pass, Emigrant, and Furnace Creek. I'm wondering if that isn't Daylight as the caption reads "at the entrance to the Monument." Emigrant isn't that pushed up against the Panamints ... but I'm often wrong. Anyone else care to weigh in?

Yeah that website even has the original 1933 one too. Check it out. http://npshistory.com/brochures/park-a-f.htm

I personally love the groovy 1965 version....and ...well.. ALL OF THEM. :grin:
