description

Have you ever moved into a new (to you) house or apartment? A move frequently means making choices about what items we can keep or what we have to discard.
What We Brought looks at photographs and objects from the El Paso Museum of History’s collection that people thought were important enough to bring to El Paso. They form a visual record of how we came to this region and what was important to us at that time.
How We Brought It. Choosing El Paso can limit the size of the items and the form and speed of the transportation available. El Paso has experienced three major innovations in travel during the past 400 years the use of animals, the steam locomotive, and the internal combustion engine.
