Questions for Photo 2

1. Compare Photo 2 with Photo 1. How are the houses alike? How are they different?

2. What traditional features can you identify? What features do you think represent changes introduced after New Mexico became a U.S. territory?

3. Refer back to Reading 3 and study this photo carefully. How does the plan of this house compare to the plan of the Martinez house? What do you think might account for the differences?
