Caption

Old Mission Church at Isleta Pueblo, South of Albuquerque, N. M. Isleta is one of the most interesting and accessible of the Indian Pueblos. This thick adobe building of low squat lines, slanting buttresses and its peculiar twin spires, makes for a picturesque sight. During the year many interesting dances and ceremonials are held here.
