Thanks Peter! I was just playing around with the shot and was happy when this developed:) My husband had the same reaction & this was his one request to visit when we went to Texas so I figured that was good enough:)

Nice work, JF! I love your whole Alamo series, but this one tops the list. It is a step back in time! YSL

When I was at Lackland AFB in San Antonio for training about "100 years ago", I tried to visit the Alamo, but picked probably the only day of the year that it was closed. Thank you for these photos.

Best wishes, Leo

Don't know about B the Kid, but if Travis and Crockett walked out , you'd get a hell of a shock. The image looks like an old daguerrotype. What a ripper! Lk.
