V.P. c. 1905. Twenty five silver gelatin photographs measuring 3 ⅜ square on slightly larger mounts. Slight fading to images, excellent overall. Very Good. Item #List01130
A collection of travel photographs, most captioned, likely taken by a N.E.A. delegate on a 1905 tour of the Southwest which ended in San Antonio, and also including some photographs taken in Mexico in a presumed continuation of those travels. Several images mention delegates, one sign on the side of a train car reads “welcome N.E.A. delegates,” and the route matches one found in contemporary newspaper accounts of a trip through the Southwest in 1905. The images are mix of candid shots and tourist attractions, with the Alamo represented, as well as several events, and some street scenes taken in Mexico.
