This is an original press photo. "The Gates of the Mountains", so named by Lewis and Clark, the explorers, are near Helena, Montana. When the historic expedition came up the Missouri river in 1805, Lewis and Clark noted the great mountains ahead (Big Belt range of the Rockies) and believed the Missouri's source must be a great cave in the mountains. But they found the channel cut through towering stone bluffs which formed a series of "gates" to the heart of the Rockies. Here the Missouri is clear and 50 feet deep, framed by white limestone mountains with deep green pines and blue sky to add contrasting colors to the picture.Photo measures 9.5 x 7.75inches. Photo is dated 01-11-1934.
