An engaging album of a trip through the American West which shines in its 20 images depicting street, building or rail stop scenes. It begins in Las Vegas, New Mexico in May, 1909 where we see vivid images of the Hotel Castaneda and the train depot. The compiler then gives a few shots of Albuquerque as well as Laguna's “Indian Village” with a grouping of mud brick houses. They next went to the Grand Canyon, devoting 11 pictures to its majesty but also depicting the Hotel El Tovar and Hopi House. There are town views of Williams and Ash Forks, Arizona as well. The album then jumps to Venice, California with a great street level view of the Cabriella Ship Hotel and the Aquarium along the boardwalk.
