Scene on strip farms along the Rio Hondo near Taos, New Mexico. This land was originally Spanish land grants and has been divided and subdivided among the descendents of the first farmers until the farms are today extremely small, some being only five or six acres. The land has been divided so that each has part of the fertile valley and part of the hilly country.
This photo was taken in 1939 as part of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information Collection at the Library of Congress.
