White Mountain Scenery

I love the ornate cover to this book called White Mountain Scenery. The back bears decoration as well.

Between the covers is an accordion fold-out of sixteen well-known views of New Hampshire's White Mountains. Here's one of the Mount Washington Railway.

The passenger car is being pushed up the mountain by the engine behind.

The more intrepid members of the party could ride behind the engine on an open platform.

As you near the top, Lizzie Bourne's marker comes into view.

The marker reads: Miss Lizzie Bourne Daughter of Judge Bourne of Kennebunk Me. Perished Here Sept. 14th 1855 Aged 23 Years.
