Several years ago, our Texas Mountain Trail non-profit wrote a grant to allow the photography collection of Van Horn's Clark Hotel Museum to be digitized and join the archives at the Portal To Texas History at the University of North Texas Library.

Rare in this collection, a view of everyday life in Van Horn, the record says:

"Photograph of couple outside adobe building. Photograph of Mr. and Mrs. Ponciano Villalovoz (Villalobos), April 8, 1912, in Van Horn, TX. Dedication at the back of photo reads," Dedico Este Retrato a, Mi Querida Mama, Pas Chacon En, Pruevas de amory y, Respecto. que le Tengo. Ponciano Villalovoz, Van Horn, Texas, April 8, de 1912"
