Photograph of the ruins of the Sales Ranch Adobe one mile north of the San Gabriel Mission, ca. 1928. The squat, one-story adobe is shown at center, stripped entirely of its roof, leaving only the walls, whose top edges appear worn and eroded. Dark spots on the left collection of walls seem to suggest a fire of some kind. In the right background, a tall palm tree can be seen. Other small trees can be seen leafless in the barren ground in front, which is littered with small shale stones.
