This image shows the brick and stone construction of arches and doorways that provided accommodations for the monks who lived at the mission. These portions of the building fell into disrepair after the mission was secularized and sold off to local landowners.
The description simply states:
SAN JOSE MISSION
San Antonio, Texas
–Secularization resulted in the abandonment and destruction of many mission structures throughout the United States. Others fell to neglect or abuse over the course of more than a century.
This card likely dates from the 1950s.
