Photographer and scholar Kammer and fiction writer Whitehouse-Peterson give a presentation covering Albuquerque’s evolution from a railroad depot to the fantastic metropolis we know today, with a little historic help from Route 66, commercial aviation, health promotion (guess that would be all the patients with TB and respiratory ailments who came to New Mexico seeking a cure), and of course the role of Clyde Tingley in promoting Albuquerque.
