My mother, Ann Fairweather at Sparky's Radio shop in Lovington, N.M. around 1947. Check out the size of those radios.
I really enjoy all the great pics of the New Mexico past. Thanks!
I absolutely love this page. I was raised in Ruidoso, but moved to Mississippi in 1994. I miss my home state and home town. I would love to see some old photos of lincoln or Ruidoso. Keep up the fantastic work. Sincerely, your mountain son in Mississippi.
Sweet Santa Fe the place to be
Great photos
Palace of the Governors, along with it’s Photo Archives, served as a treasure trove when researching on subjects for my next art project. New Mexico is where it all came together for everyone. The history is so finely preserved with so much employee talent. Bravo my friends!
Thank you for posting all these wonderful photos. My Grandfather Dr. Edwin F. Wolfe was a dentist in Santa Fe. His office was right near the La Fonda Hotel. I use to visit nearly every summer from California.
I love the historic photos on this site. It’s wonderful to be reminded of New Mexico’s unique history.
