Overview and metadata sections
The photograph album of a Mexican-American Colorado family consists of a collection of family photographs by an unknown compiler. Images document members of an extended Mexican American family in the American West over a fifty-year period, 1921-1963.
Though largely unidentified, captions name several locations including: Eaton, Loveland, Milliken, and Denver, Colorado as well as Chihuahua, Mexico. Photographs consist of portraits and group shots of the family with subjects ranging from infants and toddlers, to the elders. Some children are identified with captions. Family members are seen are home, with vehicles, at church, at weddings, working in agricultural fields, on vacation, at rest stops, and on boats.
A notable inclusion in the album are images of a female priest and images of young women in uniform, likely attending seminary. A building, L.I.F.E. Dormitory, is seen in the background.
