Images of the Southwest. The American southwest, that is. The Bisbee Deportation of 1917 - 'an event specific to Arizona that influenced the labor movement throughout the United States'; early cartography of the southwest; a rural school newspaper; mission churches; folk arts - Easter eggs, murals and so on; War Relocation Authority camps (some photos ; and more.

On my half hour of walking I saw lots of things that made me happy and one thing that made me sad. All the little weeds were drying. I wanted to water them but only Nature can do that and she is stupid. - Victor Aros, Sixth Grade (from The Little Cowpuncher, 1939)

It will be 109 in Tucson today, with isolated thunderstorms throughout the week.

Well I detest being so predictable so let me just state for the record that I hate plep and his posts, including this one, and the sections about Chicano Murals in Tucson, and Easter Eggs are particularly loathesome. I hope that he does my state (Pennsylvania) soon so that I can hate that one as well.
