Part of the Whole
Here it is west of Promontory Point, passing a water tower in Palisade Canyon in Nevada. The river to which it is running parallel is the Humbolt River. This river is interesting in as much as it doesn’t flow to anywhere. It actually evaporates before it can get to the ocean.
This is a map to give you an idea of where the Palisade Canyon is on the river.
This section of the back of the post card indicates that it came from the Newman Post Card Company.
In the 1960s, the Newman Post Card Company was acquired by H.S. Crocker.
The post card itself, is from the Divided Back Era so it was printed and published between 1907 and 1915.
