Description
Photographic portrait of Indians at the rededication of the Mission San Luis Rey de Francia, ca.1892. A group of four elderly Native American women stand at center, shown from the knees up. Two to the left hold canes or appear to be sweeping, while of the two to the right, one sits against the wall while the other stands, wrapped in a shawl. A Caucasian with a beard stands to the left, wearing a suit. The rest of the crowd pictured are non-Caucasian children wearing formal clothes. An adobe wall losing its spackle can be seen behind them. Picture file card reads: "Mexican Franciscans came in 1892. Planned to establish noviciate--plan approved by Bishop Moray. Church sufficiently repaired to celebrate the holy sacrifice, May 12, 1893.".
