San Miguel Church Altar, Santa Fe, New Mexico

The next view is inside the church, facing the elaborate and ornate altar as it looked around the turn of the 20th century.

The description states:

This is an interior view of the oldest church in the United States, situated in Santa Fe, New Mexico, which is the oldest town in the United States. In the church may be seen Spanish wool work and carving done many years ago, and the oldest bell in the United States, over 500 years old, and some Italian oil paintings, showing the rich colors of the old masters, as well as other Spanish oil paintings, and some very interesting statues.

-It is not clear the exact time of the photo, but it is reasonable to assume that it was taken after the 1888 reconstruction and before the copyright date of 1908.
