Vega Alta

Justo A. Martí Photographic Collection, 1948-1985

Vega Alta, named after a municipality located on the northern coast of Puerto Rico, used holiday decorations from both Hispanic and American Christmas traditions displayed on the glass window. At the left, the Three Kings Day (Epiphany) and on the right, Santa Claus on his sleigh. Like many recently arrived immigrants, they tried to embrace both cultural traditions.
