Standing in front of an adobe building, photographer Jesse L. Nusbaum might be anywhere in the American Southwest. In fact, the portrait was made in 1914 during completion of San Diego’s Panama-California Exposi­tion. The location was the “Painted Desert Exhibit,” a delightful recreation of Southwest Indian life whose construction was supervised by Nusbaum for the Santa Fe Railway. Details of the project, as well as examples of Nusbaum’s photographs, begin on page 86. Courtesy of the Museum of New Mexico.
