Alternate title:An adobe residence, Old Town, Albuquerque, N.M.
Summary:Adobe residence, Old Town, Albuquerque, New Mexico, circa 1908-1914. Caption reads: "A few steps from the modern homes one sees in Albuquerque are the little, squat adobe houses irregularly strung along the sides of narrow streets in the quaint, old Spanish quarter known as 'Old Town.' It is picturesque. One suspects that life on the old philosophic plan required but little to subsist on, and positively wonders how the houses, plain as they are, ever got themselves built!" Postcard number: 12271.
