Genuine Curteich-Chicago “C.T. Art Colortone”

The description states:

A-29 — SANDIA PEAK AND NEEDLE, SANDIA MOUNTAINS, ALBUQUERQUE, N. M.

The rugged mountain which towers above the Rio Grande Valle on the east to a height of over 10,000 feet, presents an entirely different appearance from the opposite side, being thickly wooded and containing many recreation areas for both summer and winter sports.

–The Sandia Mountains are just to the east of Albuquerque and Sandi Crest is 10,678 feet high.

This image likely dates from the 1940s.
