4 0 c m
actual image size: 22cm x 27cm


Portrait of an elderly man (named Wahu Tota), wrapped in a striped blanket. According to James Stevenson's original note for this photograph (prepared circa 1885), the subject 'is supposed to have been the last of the living Pecos who formerly inhabited the ruined town on the Rio Pecos, some miles east of Santa Fe. He was residing with the Jemez people when the picture was taken.'

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.
