Additional Details:
From the first part of the 19th Century until the 80's the Santa Fe Trail, extending from Westport (now Kansas City) Missouri, across barren prairie, rugged mountains and arid desert, to Santa fee, capital of New Mexico. Was the avenue over which flowed the inter course between the old American frontier and the Spanish Southwest. Here we see the arrival of a train of prairie schooners, drawn by oxen. The old Fonda, site of the modern sumptuous hotel, is the fourth building at the right. Then, as now, it was the end of the Santa Fe Trail.
