Liberty Cap and Hotel  Yellowstone National Park

This early postcard shows Liberty Cap, a now-inactive geyser cone, and the National Hotel at Yellowstone's Mammoth Hot Springs. The large hotel was not structurally stable and was eventually torn down. The present Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel is located on the approximate site of the former hotel.

This postcard is one of a series of early cards that were embossed with a raised relief to highlight part of the image. In this case, Libery Cap is raised slighly, as can be seen from the light concave impression viewed from the reverse side (below).     (No publisher name is given on this card.)
