Here Is What Life In New Mexico’s Tiny Towns Looked Like 100 Years Ago
How do you think you would have fared during life a century ago? Times seemed simpler—though much rougher and dangerous—when compared to today but it’s always interesting looking back at old photos. The following photos depict life a century ago, between 1912 and 1925. During that time, life rapidly evolved with the advancement of medicine, living conditions, and more. Let’s take a look!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
What was life like for your ancestors living in those days? Have an interesting photo or story to share? We’d love to hear from you!
