The sacred Alamo stands within the very heart of the business district of the city of San Antonio. It was erected in 1718 by the Franciscan Monks and was originally the Chapel of the Mission of San Antonio de Valera. It was within the gray stone walls of the quaint old Chapel, March 6 1836 that Travis , Barrett, Bowie, Crockett and 170 unsung heroes gave their lives in defense of Texas liberty.
If you have never visited and get the chance to see the Alamo I recommend it. They say it is one of the most haunted places in the USA. I did not see any ghosts on my visit but I did feel a sense of sadness and quiet. It was is one of the most eerie places I have ever visited.
I am sharing this at The Best Hearts Are Crunchy for Friendship Friday
Thanks for stopping by.. I hope that you come back real soon

Lake Washington Bridge, Seattle, is a tribute to the ingenuity of American Engineers. Except for entrances the bridge is full floating, being supported by pontoons. A section can be moved to accomodate navigation.

Such an adorable group of children. Wish I knew who they were. Need to study it more. My grandmother Grace lived in Mora at this time. She would of been 17 so not her but could very well be her younger sister born 1906 or brother born 1909.
Thanks for stopping by.. Hope that you have enjoyed seeing this real photo postcard and will come again real soon... Grace
