Sidney Pockels was co-owner of Pockels, Paint, and Glass Company. Sidney, frequently climbed into his model A Ford to travel from Saint Louis to the Monument Valley Navajo Indian Reservation located at the Arizona/Utah border. It was here that he was continually drawn to witness the wonders of the Navajo Indian festivals and artistry.
