   The photo above is a Southeast view over Santa Fe taken on Apr 7, 1931. Central is the State Capitol. Peak in the background left is Sun Mount.

   The photo above and those following were all taken by the U. S. Army Air Service. These are my personal scans from the Governor Seligman photo collection. Below is the Army stamp on the reverse of photos.
