The back of this undated photograph reads, "Workers at Newhall Ranch."

The image comes to us from the family of Samuel Duran (b. 2-19-1903, d. 1-19-1970), a farmer from New Mexico who came to work for The Newhall Land and Farming Co. in the mid-1930s after working at a ranch in Oxnard. Samuel lived in a company home on the Saugus-Ventura Road (now Magic Mountain Parkway and Highway 126) where he and wife Emilia (Appenzoller), also from New Mexico, raised six children.

According to his descendants Samuel remained with Newhall Land until 1962-63 when he went to work at the Kings Ranch in Bouquet Canyon, then to Lancaster to farm alfalfa before returning to his native New Mexico.
