Meet the Rattlesnake Queen

Meet the Rattlesnake Queen
We ran this posting five years ago. It’s so good, we thought we’d run it for those who missed it.

Here's a "must see video" for you.  Filmed circa 1934, it is of Catherine Reidy, posted by her son Jim.  Catherine did her rattlesnake hunting north of Tucson which, we are guessing could have been somewhere in today's Oro Valley.  Apparently, she had quite a business!

Gives one a sense of what Oro Valley was like before it became Oro Valley.
