About this title


Beginning with drawings and woodcuts depicting the days before photography, this book follows the story of life at the Pass of the North, documenting change as El Paso took shape and grew from a dirt-street frontier town into a modern city in the 1970s. Each era is fascinating, from the arrival of the conquistadores, through the coming of the railroad in the 1880s, the turn of the century with the establishment of more businesses and the move toward permanent residences, the Mexican Revolution, the war years, the rapid changes of the fifties and, finally, the sophistication of the seventies. Many of the photographs, especially those of the Mexican Revolution, are extremely rare and had not been public before the 1971 publication of El Paso in Pictures.

First published by The Mangan Press/El Paso.
