Description
Photograph of an exterior view of the Miguel Parra adobe in a state of disrepair, San Juan Capistrano, ca.1930. The adobe is shown at center, its front door obscured by a bush in the right foreground. On the roof, a box window annex can be seen rising from the wooden shingles, what appears to be a lightning rod affixed to its peak. To the left, a window is visible, with its original iron bars (or rejas) with glass panes inside and wooden shutters outside. The spackle of the facade is cracking and shows brick in some spots. Photoprint reads "One mile east of Capistrano, south side of Ortega Highway. In orange grove, front north".
