If you have gone by El Zaguan in recent weeks, you may have noticed a vintage photographic image hanging in front of the building’s streetside wall. El Zaguan is the name of the historic James L. Johnson house, 545 Canyon Road, and the home of the nonprofit Historic Santa Fe Foundation since 1979. In that hanging image, the public is shown what the building’s street facade looked like a hundred or so years ago. It helps in understanding the current work to restore the plaster surface and other elements of the wall.

“So many people had stopped to ask about the work that was done and the history of El Zaguan that Charles Coffman remembered this picture and thought it would be great as an educational reference,” said Graciela Petronio Tomé, chair of the Historic Santa Fe Foundation board of directors.
