This March 11, 1901 photo from the east shows a small plume from the summit of Colima during a period of intermittent mild explosive eruptions that began in 1893.  This eruption included the emission of small lava flows from the summit during 1895-1902.  The fresh, unvegetated lava flows descending from El Volcancito, a satellitic peak on the NE (right) flank, were produced during the formation of El Volcancito in 1869.   Photo by José Ma. Arreola, 1901 (courtesy of Julian Flores, University of Guadalajara).
