Postcards From Mecca

See rediscovered photographs of the Early Desert. When Susie Keef Smith died in Leucadia in 1988, her estate was handled by a county administrator who threw all her belongings into a dumpster. San Diego archaeologist Ron May dived into the bin and retrieved syrup-soaked old photo albums that told a Thelma-and-Louise story of the 1920s California desert.
