At the Top of the World, a Mile above the Sea, Mt. Washington, White Mountains, N. H. 301

I have stood at the foot of Mt.
Washington --- but never at its top.

Passengers and Cog Railway Train are shown at the
top of Mount Washington, after a climb of three and
three-quarter miles. This trip, up the Mount Washing-
ton Railroad, once taken, will long be remembered.
The views from the top of this famous mountain are
the finest in the eastern part of the United States.
