Scope and Contents

In 1983 Ave Bonar took photographs of the first trailer park in Austin, Texas, at 1600 Barton Springs Road. Commissioned by Susan Toomey Frost, granddaughter of the developer, Bonar's photos appeared in the November 1984 issue of Third Coast magazine.

During Ann Richards' 1990 campaign for Texas governor, Bonar served as the official campaign photographer. Some of these photos were published in With Ann: A Journey Across Texas with a Candidate for Governor (1991). Also included is an oral history of Bonar's experiences photographing the campaign.

Postcards in the collection represent Bonar's work from 1974-1990. The images are representative examples of her work in Texas, California, and Ecuador.
