A pueblo of five adobe buildings represent New Mexico, bringing to the Fair the sun-baked walls, Indian handicraft and hot enchiladas that art part of the state’s Mexican and Indian heritage. Displays emphasize resources, research and recreation. A tourist center supplies travel information and shows a color movie of state scenes. Mountain trout from the state’s streams swim in a pool. The Trading Post has Indian pottery, blankets and other products for sale. The largest building is a restaurant.

There was a lot going on at the New Mexico pavilion when this photo was taken. As a sketch artist works in front of the trading post, an Indian offers a variety of headdresses to guests outside the restaurant. Inside, diners were being entertained by Indian dancers and musicians. (CD #37 Set 185 #6)
