Skills

Choosing El Paso often meant bringing skills to the community. Tools here represent those of skilled laborers, office workers, and professionals. The hand tools helped create the built environment. The typewriters advanced business and communication. The glasses worn by this unidentified El Pasoan represent the work of a professional optometrist. People brought all of these kinds of skills and many more to the city.
