Scope and Content
The collection includes photographs of Santa Fe buildings, such as the old Capital, the Palace of the Governors, the Penitentiary, and the U.S. Indian School. Also included are street scenes, homes, and businesses. Among the portraits are government officials and citizens of Santa Fe. Other images depict the Navajo and the Jemez and San Juan Pueblos, religious processions, as well as a U.S. Surveying team.
Finally, as the official photographer for the Santa Fe Central Railroad Kaadt material includes photographs depicting the building of the railroad, including the ceremony for the last spike.
All photos are circa 1895-1905 and almost all are original prints or negatives. It is possible that some images attributed to Kaadt may have been copies of work by other photographers (including Hillers) that were useful for the Santa Fe Central or other commerical purposes.
