This postcard shows Scenic Drive overlooking part of the city. The text reads, "City from Scenic Drive, El Paso, Texas". The other side reads, "This fine view is seen from the scenic drive, 500 feet above the city around the base of Mt. Franklin, extreme southern end of the American Rockies. Elevation at this point is 4,222 feet and it presents a splendid panorama of El Paso, Juarez, Old Mexico, mountain, desert and irrigated valley". Made by Beals from Des Moines, Iowa.
