Summary:Interior, Old Church, Pueblo of Acoma, New Mexico, circa 1907-1914. Caption reads: "The most strikingly interesting of New Mexican pueblos is Acoma. It is built on the summit of a table rock 350 feet above the plain which is 7,000 feet above the sea. The pueblo is 1,000 feet in length and 40 feet high. The church is of enormous proportions, and must have cost the labor of many generations, for its walls are 60 feet high and 10 feet thick, and it has timbers of 40 feet long and 14 inches square, every particle of which had to be carried up from the plain below. The pueblo formerly stood on the crest of the Enchanted Mesa, 430 feet above the valley and three miles away." Postcard number: H-2019.
