The state of Arizona turns 100 years old in 2012, and the centennial projects and celebrations abound around here! The Cochise County History On The Move Display is one such centennial project.
This project features life-sized (or nearly so) rigid historic photographs of folks who paved the way in Cochise County, Arizona's early years. The display will travel around to different locations throughout the year.
Here is one photo-tribute: her name is Lorna Lockwood, and she lived from 1903-1977. She was Arizona's first female chief justice in a state supreme court, serving in the position in two terms.
Did I fool you into thinking this is the real Lorna Lockwood? It's actually her life-sized black and white photo, set against the backdrop of Cochise College- Sierra Vista campus. (-:

I hope to capture the many other honored folks in this display as it travels around the county this year.
