This is my grandmother.  The picture seems to be taken by a professional photographer.  Does anyone recognize the name of the photographer.  The picture would have been taken in Santa Fe around 1920.

Ed Romero and I were discussing the Chili Line recently.  It turns out we each had a grandfather who worked on it.  Are there any other memories about it?  Very little physical evidence and not many photos remain.

An important book regarding the Indian perspective of Santa Fe's 400th birthday.  Essays cover everything from selling jewelry under the portal of the Palace of the Governors to the impact of the Santa Fe Trail on the Plains tribes.  5 stars!
