An ash-laden eruption column rises above Rincón de la Vieja volcano on June 4, 1922.  About two months earlier (on April 11) evidence of a recent large eruption had been observed.  After the explosive eruption of June 4, no further eruptive activity was recorded until 1966, when eruptions began occurring more frequently.
