With the opening of Ryan as a tourist facility, the UP produced a brochure offering packages to the Death Valley area. As part of the preparation, three Hollywood Starlets were posed for the camera in several locations. This is just off the southern end of the long trestle between Ryan and the Grand View Mine.
The original of this shot begins the 1929 Union Pacific tourist brochure.
The lower part of the mine workings at Ryan, on the west leg of the Wye, can be seen at mid-left. The grade there is of the DVRR.
