Mission San Diego de Alcala - Another Window

I liked the color of this photo. The Mission has been used over the years for many purposes. After the United States acquired this area from Mexico, two companies of the artillery occupied the mission beginning in November, 1853. For the next several years, various companies of artillery and cavalry were at the mission until 1858 or early 1859. They made some repairs and added a second floor to the church. Subsequently, the mission was abandoned for several years.
