Other pages are arranged by geographic location: Monterey, Irapuato, Querétaro, Mexico City, Teotihuacan, Ixtaccihuatl, Xochimilco, Cuernavaca, Puebla, Atlixco, Pachuca, Manzanillo, Guadalajara, Mazatlan, La Cruz, Culiacán, San Blas, Los Mochis, Topolobampo, Guaymas, and Tiburon, among others. Includes several group portraits of workers in a mine, agricultural views, landscapes, town views, antiquities, and other sites. One multi-part panorama of Los Mochis was laid-in the album. Some snapshots of Corkran and companions are present.
