view [Miscellaneous Sites in Mexico] [lantern slide]: two farmers and an agave plant in an unidentified location digital asset number 1
Colorist:
Van Altena, Edward
Physical description:
1 lantern slide: col. ; 3.25 x 4 in
Type:
Lantern slides
Place:
Mexico
Date:
1937
1937 Jan
Notes:
Mount reads: "Edward Van Altena, 71-79 W. 45th St., N.Y.C."
Historic plate number: "86; 85."
The lantern slide includes the text "Tipos Mexicanos," the number 85, and a logo of a reversed capital D and a capital E. This appears to have been a commercially produced lantern slide whose original source may not have been a photograph taken on the Garden Club of America trip. Therefore, the 1937 date may be questionable. Similar images are MX020049, MX020052 and MX020054.
