Taos Plaza was the center of village life where Anglos, Hispanics and Native Americans freely mixed. Taos’ isolated location, far from the railroad, preserved its Wild West flavor well into the 20th century.

Latham, an illustrator of greeting cards, came to New Mexico in 1925, probably on the recommendation of her former teacher Andrew Dasburg. She met and married the printmaker Howard Cook in 1927 and they settled in Taos.
