This promotional booklet, published by the Fred Harvey Company, bears no publication date. Judging from the tourist attractions and hotels pictured in this booklet, it was probably published around 1900. The book highlights the Harvey attractions in New Mexico and Arizona, with a few pictures of Kansas, Colorado, and Texas-based Harvey locations dispersed throughout the book.
|Commercial photographer Sumner Matteson took pictures of American Indian rituals that were used in museum and magazine publications. These photographs of American Indian women and pottery and baskets were used widely in Harvey Co. promotional literature. The ”Hair Dresser” photograph features Hopi women with their hair in ”butterfly whorls,” a hairstyle that represented purity in young American Indian women. The ”Hopi Basket Weaver” is another familiar trope used throughout Harvey Co. promotional literature to symbolize the industriousness of southwestern Indians.
