1960s Hermits Rest Photos, Native American Indian dance, and random

These are photos from a box of Kodachrome slides labeled “Jan 7 61”. I imagine that she must have taken a road trip across the western USA, stopping to see friends along the way… One of these slides is clearly from “Hermit’s Rest”, which is a structure built in 1914 at the western end of Hermit Road… and it looks like there was some kind of reception or party inside the building. The cake wording reads “ElMonte California, Incorporated November 1912”. Then, there are some random slides of what I’m assuming is the Grand Canyon and Native American Indian pow-wows (probably put on for the tourists).

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
