Tastes & Treasures II at Navajo County Historical Society

 1895-1897. The early years of Navajo County courthouse. Check out pictures Historical League Mary Perona took of the courthouse and the jail when she delivered a box of Tastes & Treasures II: A Storytelling Cookbook of Historic Arizona to them. Navajo Co. Historical Society Administrator Dawn Sawyer was very pleased to receive the books filled with AZ history, recipes, memories.

We are grateful to Mary for delivering books and taking photos.

Barbershop chairs from 1900s

 Barbershops have changed but not Angel Delgadillo's Route 66 shop. They still use his father's 1926 chair. Mary Perona took pictures at Navajo Co. Historical Society in Holbrook so you can see the similarity to Angel's in Seligman. Photo shows Zona Lorig interviewing Angel for his oral history when he was honored as 2023 AZ Historymaker. •
