What's going on, Albuquerque?
The grounds of the VA facility at Gibson & San Mateo. This photo was taken of the older section where you can almost hear that Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy...
One hell of an example of classic Pueblo Revival architecture, that place...doesn't get enough recognition.
I recently bought a new book called "Albuquerque Deco and Pueblo" that includes lots of great vintage photos of the VA, along with other Albuquerque landmarks from the 30s-50s. It's in that great "Images of America" series from Arcadia Publishing that includes a lot of other interesting titles about Albuquerque, including a recent book about the history of Albuquerque's Parks, a collection of vintage photos of Albuquerque baseball teams, a great book about the towns of the Sandia Mountains, and several others.
