Sierra Madre's Pioneer Days

Click on the link to an event below to see photos from that event

I spent a couple hours talking with Joe Hinojos, a photographer with a large body of work, not only of Sierra Madre in the 40s and 50s, but nationally, including photos of Judy Garland, Jimmy Durante, Gen. Stilwell, and more.  He allowed me to videotape him telling stories of the old days, and we are going to work together to produce a screensaver of his work, which will be sold around town.  I have now added a Joe Hinojos page, and created a Historic Sierra Madre page as well.
