The collection includes 104 black-and-white photographs of rural Mexico in the 1920s, including many pictures of lumbering and forestry. More than half of the pictures have descriptions either in the margin or on the back.
These images possibly tie in with Milton Lockwood's expedition to Mexico (see the Milton Lockwood Papers), but there is nothing on the pictures to substantiate this link.
