|Downtown El Paso, 1890s, click on the photo for a closer look!|
We just love this photo of downtown El Paso, found for us by the El Paso County Historical Society for our social media storytelling project in June. From time to time, we collect content about true stories in our region--in this case, the story of the first woman to ride her bicycle around the world and her visit during that trip to El Paso in 1895--and share them with all of you on the Daily Photo, our Facebook page, and our Twitter feed. The Vendome Hotel was where Annie Londonderry stayed while in El Paso!
We'll be sharing more stories this year on our social media channel, including right here on the Daily Photo...look for "Dining Along Historic Highways," the "Craft of Boot Making," and "the Civilian Conservation Corps," coming up!
