The description states:

18 — PLAZA AND OLD CHURCH

LAGUNA INDIAN PUEBLO

Laguna is one of the very picturesque Indian Villages on Highway 66 — the Ocean to Ocean route — and situated between Albuquerque and Gallup. They have nice little farms in the fertile valley near by and raise horses, cattle, and sheep. The women make poetry of a very attractive design.

–The old church referenced above is the San Jose de Laguna mission church, seen in the image in the far background.

This postcard likely dates from the 1940s.
