        Condition B: abrasions in margins and image; repaired tears and time-staining at edges; pin holes in corners; faded. Mounted on board.
        We can date this poster based on the logo that was used by Union Pacific from 1933 to 1939, and the resort's inception in 1936. Specifically conceived as a railway destination by the company, Sun Valley also saw the premier of the world's first chairlift in 1936.
