After consulting professionals at the Denver Art Museum, History Colorado, and the Western History Depart of the Denver Public Library, the general consensus is that the format for this original William Henry Jackson photograph is quite scarce.  One hypothesis put forth is that this particular image was used as "salesman's sample" for Jackson's photographs and that it may have hung in a specially reserved photographer's train car (as depicted in the above photograph).  Another concept put forth is that it was an exceptional promotion for the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad placed in depots or grand hotels along its routes.
