Overview

Harvey Houses of New Mexico: Historic Hospitality from Raton to Deming by Rosa Walston Latimer


The Santa Fe Line and the famous Fred Harvey restaurants forever changed New Mexico and the Southwest, bringing commerce, culture and opportunity to a desolate frontier. The first Harvey Girls ever hired staffed the Raton location. In a departure from the ubiquitous black and white uniform immortalized by Judy Garland in 1946's Harvey Girls, many of New Mexico's Harvey Girls wore colorful dresses reflective of local culture. In Albuquerque, the Harvey-managed Alvarado Hotel doubled as a museum for carefully curated native art. Join author Rosa Walston Latimer and discover New Mexico's unique history of hospitality the "Fred Harvey way."

Although I just ordered one copy of the above book & have not read it yet until the order arrives, I already a great deal of the contents as my 3 daughters have read portions to me. I am the Daughter of a Harvey Girl named in this book and the Niece of a Harvey Girl in this book! Our Family is extremely proud of our Harvey Girl image and my hats off to Rose Latimer whom my middle daughter recently met in Latimer's bookstore in Post, TX.
