Children at Church, Alamo National Forest, 1908

Black & white photo of three children in their Sunday clothes posing in front of adobe church.

Three girls in Sunday clothes pose in front of an adobe church in 1908 in the Alamo National Forest. The church has an interesting door, with a cross that is either painted or made of wood as part of the door. Two more children can be seen in the open doorway in the background. The photo was taken by Arthur M. Neal, the Forest Service Acting Supervisor in charge of the Alamo National Forest in New Mexico Territory (now the Lincoln National Forest).
