English Architects in Southwestern USA

July 13, 2011 at 8:07 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

 We have recently learned of a group who are researching Brit (English) architects who practiced in the Southwestern USA and northern Mexico in the 19th and early 20th Century.  They have recognized Wm. J. Carpenter’s work on the Merrick Building and the Myar Opera House in El Paso, and possibly some designs in Zacatecas, Mexico.  He also painted some watercolors of Mexican scenes during this period.  Anyone with any information about Mr. Carpenter’s presence in these areas is urged to make a comment here.
