Roping Steer on Jackrabbit
The full first line reads, “Roping steer from New Mex Jack Rabbit” then it continues, “Carlsbad Caverns NM”. It’s signed in ink by “Howard, Pecos Tex.”
Leave Texas, Enter New Mexico
St. Francis Cathedral, Santa Fe, NM
Dated May, 1938.
New Mexico Products
Looks like maybe from a World’s Fair of Exhibition? Dated Monday, July 10, 1939 on back.
Who’s A Good Dog? You Are!
Other than being in with the bunch of other photos from NM, I know it’s not really on topic, but that dog is pretty cute.
Men and New Mexico Sign
This pic is boss. Out in the heat in the 3 piece suit. My guess is that this is a pic somehow connected with the railroad. Only somebody from outside the area would be dressed like that in what looks to be the middle of nowhere.
View from the Tram, August, 1969
Wow, there’s nothing for miles. Makes you realize how much Albuquerque has grown (sprawled) in the last 45+ years.
Photo from August 19, 1939 with a stamp from the Camera Shop of New Mexico.
Parade in Albuquerque
I recognize the Welborn Paint logo and the old YMCA that was on the NE corner of Central and 1st.
No note on the back of this one. Not very much to go on for where it was taken but the other photos in this series were from Albuquerque, so that’s a guess.
La Fonda Santa Fe, 1946
Tried to keep the rag edges on this one. Love the way the developer uses the deboss to make it look like a print.
DeAnza Motor Lodge
Looks to be an image from the late 50s or early 60s.
