Old Santa Fé Photos Gathered from FaceBook Group YOU KNOW YOU'RE "OLD SCHOOL SANTA FE" WHEN...

FaceBook is so addictive. I originally joined at the beginning of last summer because I heard that information about my Santa Fé High School 40th year class of 1971 Reunion information would be found there. First I found my close friends who I've known since our days of talking about Northern Exposure on Prodigy about 19 years ago. Then I found friends from alt.showbiz.gossip followed by so many of my very favorite former students. It only took about a month to have me totally hooked.

Sometime in January, a new group formed called "YOU KNOW YOU'RE "OLD SCHOOL SANTA FE" WHEN..." When photos of "Old Santa Fé" started to appear, I knew I had to add my own collection. 1000s of photos began to appear. Here is a collection of some of my favorites from even "older school" than I am. I'm not sure where these photos originated, who deserves credit for them or even when or where they were taken.
