Adelina Ortiz y Hill has identified the person in this picture as Marie Isabela Sena. Adelina, a charter member of Voces de Santa Fe and a Santa Fe Living Treasure, was a personal acquaintance of Marie’s. Marie was the 1933 Fiesta de Santa Fe Queen. She is pictured here modeling fiesta queen attire from her past reign at a merienda, afternoon tea, at Sena Plaza, which was her ancestral home.

The Sociedad Folklorica held fashion shows on Sunday afternoons during the annual Fiesta de Santa Fe. According to Adelina, traditional refreshments served at the fashion shows included chocolate and biscochitos.

The fashion show pictured here occurred in the 1940’s, several years after Marie herself reigned as Fiesta Queen.
