Photograph caption dated October 4, 1949 reads, "Guadalupe A. Herrera places a tile on a form, ready to move it out into the sun for the 'slow-bake' part of the tile-manufacturing process--the sun drying. This brick already has been baked. Now it must dry in the sun until workers are ready to use it, with scores of others, in roofing the workshops." Workers are participating in the restoration of the Mission San Fernando Rey de Espan~a in California.; See images #00119789 through #00119795 for all photos in this series.
