The Lodge at Cloudcroft

The inscription on the back of this picture identifies the woman in the center as being my great grandmother Helen D Spiegel, that the woman seated on the right is Claudia Meador “(now Mrs. Eli Sanger),” and that the photograph was taken in Cloudcroft, New Mexico. Cloudcroft is a resort town north of El Paso. A famous resort known as The Lodge at Cloudcroft was built there in the 1890s. This photograph was probably taken the time same time as the other photo of my great grandmother and Miss Meador – making it sometime in the 1910s.
