Old Albuquerque Photos
I found these in one of the many photo albums I brought home from my sister's. They had originally belonged to my grandmother.
I have no idea where the first shot was taken from, but as you can see there is not much of Albuquerque at that time.
The second photo is a restaurant my grandmother worked at when they first moved here. It was called the El Sombrero and as you can probably tell it was a giant sombrero shaped restaurant, much like the brown derby in CA only a sombrero. It was located at what is San Pedro and Central and as you can see from the background there was not much around there then. I don't know who the pretty lady is.
Not sure of the year the photos were taken I will guess somewhere between 1947 and the early 50s.
