Summary:El Ortiz, new Santa Fe Hotel, Lamy, New Mexico, circa 1915-1930. Caption reads: "El Ortiz, built by the Santa Fe Railroad is a quaint little inn of adobe construction, lying at an altitude of 6475 feet in the Glorietta Mountains. The style of architecture is similar to the buildings in New Mexico a hundred years ago, and the hotel is a reproduction of a Mexican hacienda of a hundred years ago. Old beams and columns have been used throughout and are particularly prominent in the garden or placita, and in the ceiling of the lobby. The huge fire place and mantel, the Mexican doors, with oblique panes of glass, the old fashioned furniture, the quaint placita with its many easy chairs, together with its peculiar style, lend to El Ortiz and air of restful, homelike quiet." Postcard number: 79025.
