Caption on card: Acoma "The City in the Sky", is located in a beautiful valley 7000 feet above the sea, upon the top of a mesa which itself is 357 feet above the floor of the valley. It is the "home of half a thousand quaint lives and of half a thousand years romance." The pueblo is really three giant buildings running east and west a thousand feet and rising forty feet high. Each building is several hundred feet long but cut by cross walls into separate little homes.

Verso: left side contains a description of the Acoma pueblo; right side of the card is an advertisement for the Indian and Mexican Trading Post at the Old De la Guerra House, El Paseo.
