dc.description.abstractThe general purpose of this study was to investigate private dwelling interiors in the Gadsden Purchase area 1854-1915. The specific purpose was to develop a primer on the subject. Examinations of existing materials, of written eyewitness accounts and of photographic data were procedures used to obtain information. Categories analyzed were floor treatments, wall treatments, doors, window treatments, ceiling treatments and lighting, furniture, heating systems, storage, and accessories. It was found that prior publications on the subject were non-existent. Written information by eyewitnesses revealed simple, functional interiors, especially during the early years of the study. Photographic data demonstrated treatments ranging from plain to sophisticated. The completion of the Southern Pacific Railroad across the Gadsden Purchase in 1881 influenced interiors considerably. It made possible the transportation of heavy building materials and furnishings. It also made travel to the area easier for women. It was they who were ultimately responsible for the refinement of private dwelling interiors investigated in the Purchase,
