A very young Latinx cowboy from Penasco, New Mexico, poses for a photographer from the Office of War Information Photograph Collection in July 1940. Hispanic Americans were the first Europeans in the state of New Mexico, as the Spanish in Mexico expanded their empire northwards. The photos were taken as part of an extensive pictorial record of American life between 1935 and 1944. For more photos, please visit our country’s original Facebook at the Library of Congress, www.LOC.gov.
