Part of a series showcasing vintage photos of American towns or attractions, this text presents the history of Carlsbad, New Mexico from its origins in the 1890's as a ranching and farming community through its many faces to the present day as a nuclear storage hub and tourist stop on the way to the caverns. Birchell, a Carlsbad native and library technician, organizes the book both chronologically, and thematically with chapters on Carlsbad Caverns, military history, and important women residents. Short but informative paragraphs describe each photo. The text will interest the general reader wanting to trace the history of this eclectic town.
