Description

View (looking eastward) of buildings surrounding the main plaza of Sandia pueblo, with a wooden cart (known locally as a carreta) and several people prominent in the foreground, and the Sandia mountains visible in the distance. According to James Stevenson's original note for this photograph (prepared circa 1885), '[a]s the village is located in a very fertile portion of the Rio Grande valley the inhabitants are devoted to pastural and agricultural pursuits.'

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
