About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Nothing exceptional

Just regular meals.

What, you think you're somebody special?

Saturday nights

Higgins & Higgins looks as though it had more than its share of Saturday night bar fights.

Holland's General Store

It seems Mogollon counted more than one General Store:

Feeling hungry?

My favorite Spaghetti Western, "My Name Is Nobody," filmed several scenes in Mogollon. One side story of the film was an abandoned gold mine that sprang back to life (albeit with stolen gold). One final point made by Henry Fonda's character: "When you're up to your nose in s**t, keep your mouth shut!"

Mogollon Today

The general store has been rebuilt, and the Snappy Lunch building is still there.
