The Albuquerque Municipal Airport, financed by a half-million dollar WPA grant, was opened in 1939. The Pueblo-style terminal building was designed by Ernest Blumenthal.
The Airport was one of many New Deal projects undertaken in New Mexico from 1933 to 1943. By 1935 over half of the state's population was employed in public works development and construction such as the airport terminal.
The Albuquerque Museum Photo Archives contain a selection of photographs made when the Terminal was in use in the 1940s and 1950s; they can be viewed in a set at Flickr.
My photographs of the terminal were made with the Minoltina AL-S.
