Mission San Jose Entrance, San Antonio, Texas

Natural Color by Mike Roberts, Berkeley 2, Calif.

The description states:

MISSION SAN JOSE, SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS

Facade above entrance to the chapel. The carving took Pedro Huizar 13 years to complete.

Pedro Huizar was a wealthy and influential judge and sculptor in and around San Antonio in the 18th century.

This card likely dates from the 1950s.
