AULTMAN, OTIS A. (1874–1943). Otis A. Aultman, photographer, was born on August 27, 1874, in Holden, Missouri. His family moved to Trinidad, Colorado, in 1888. As a young man he learned photography from his older brother, Oliver, many of whose photographs of the Trinidad area are now in the collections of the Colorado State Historical Society. Aultman married and had two children, but the marriage ended in permanent separation in 1908, after which he moved to El Paso. There he first worked for Scott Photo Company, was later in partnership with Robert Dorman, and eventually owned his own studio. Aultman was a favorite of Pancho Villa, who called Aultman "Banty Rooster" because he was only 5'4" tall. Aultman worked for the International News Service and Pathé News and experimented with cinematography. In 1916 he was one of the first photographers to arrive at Columbus, New Mexico, after the famous raid on that town by the Villistas. After the military part of the revolution was over, Aultman settled down to a conventional career as a commercial photographer. He took an interest in photographs depicting early El Paso history and collected many from the 1880s and 1890s. Another of his interests was archaeology; early photographs of archeological sites in the El Paso area are an important part of his work, and he was a founding member of the El Paso Archaeology Society.

Aultman died from a fall in his studio in 1943. Subsequently, the El Paso Chamber of Commerce purchased his negatives from the estate. Over the next twenty years the negatives were moved from one storage place to another, and undoubtedly some disappeared. In the 1960s, due largely to the interest of historian C. L. Sonnichsen, the remaining 6,000 negatives were purchased, prints were made, and both negatives and prints were placed in the El Paso Public Library. A second set of prints is in the Library of the University of Texas at El Paso. Aultman's photographs are a priceless contribution to the recorded history of El Paso, southern New Mexico, and Ciudad Juárez. Equally important are his photos of the early stages of the Mexican revolution.

In late 1910 revolutionary movements broke out in response to Madero's letter. Pascual Orozco, along with governor Abraham González, formed a powerful military union in the north, and took Mexicali and Chihuahua City, although they were not especially committed to Madero. These victories encouraged alliances with other revolutionary leaders, including Pancho Villa. Against Madero's wishes, Orozco and Villa fought for and won Ciudad Juárez, bordering El Paso, Texas, along the Rio Grande. Madero's action also mobilized revolutionary organization and opened up the way for the Baja California Rebellion, against his intentions.

After Madero defeated the Mexican federal army, on May 21, 1911 he signed the Treaty of Ciudad Juárez with Díaz. It stated that Díaz would abdicate his rule and be replaced by Madero. Insisting on a new election, Madero won overwhelmingly in late 1911. Some supporters criticized him for appearing weak by not assuming the presidency and failing to pass immediate reforms, but Madero established a liberal democracy and received support from the United States and popular leaders such as Orozco, Villa and Zapata.

Madero was a weak leader and quickly lost much of his support while in power. He angered both the more radical revolutionists and the conservative counter-revolutionists, including the unpopular Congress elected during Díaz's rule. His refusal to enact land reforms caused a break with Zapata, who announced the Plan de Ayala, which called for the return of lands "usurped by the hacendados" (hacienda owners) and demanded armed conflict against the government. Zapata then sided with Orozco.

The image shows El Paso street in the 1910s. The street is regarded as oldest street in El Paso and once was the center of the little town at the Rio Grande.
The big building to the right is the Hotel Paso del Norte. Built in 1912 by the architectural firm Trost & Trost, it was made out of steel, brick and terra cotta. The interior was very elegant, especially the ornate lobby, which was topped with a Tiffany glass dome. The building was remodeled and renovated several times. Over the years, the Paso del Norte Hotel became a hot spot for cattleman, ranchers, and especially for guests to see the Mexican Revolution from the rooftop. In 1993, the Angeles Corporation of Mexico purchased and renamed it Camino Real Hotel. Photographer is looking south.

This picture shows the El Cronómetro, a jewelry and watches store, and the Roma Hotel. The stores were located on South El Paso Street. The owner of El Cronómetro, Valente Cruz, is standing outside his store, 417 S. El Paso Street. The American flag is hanging from the balcony.

As the sign above the entrance indicates, the Roma Hotel rented rooms on daily, weekly and monthly basis. During the Mexican Revolution in 1913, Pancho Villa met at the bar inside the Roma Hotel with German agent Maximilian Kloss, who tried to make a deal with him in exchange for German submarine bases off the coast of Baja California. As many historical sites with connection to the Mexican Revolution, the Hotel was demolished in 2002 to make room for a Burger King.

The Popular Dry Goods Building was part of the Popular Dry Goods Co. store chain, founded by Adolph Schwartz. It was family owned and run from 1902 to 1995. This store, since 1917 located at 301 San Antonio, on the corner of Mesa and San Antonio, was opened in 1903. It was expanded and remodeled several times. Behind the store you can see the Victor and the First National Bank.
The Popular was involved in the Mexican Revolution, not only because both sides bought merchandise for their troops there, but also because the basement served as a hiding place for General Juan Navarro after his surrender at the Battle of Juárez in 1911.

Madero against longtime autocrat Porfirio Díaz, and lasted for the better part of a decade until around 1920. Over time the revolution changed from a revolt against the established order to a multi-sided civil war with frequently shifting power struggles.
