Flash From The Past

The other day
We were walking from the bus station home
When we passed by a big open comedor.
John went in to get a bottle of water
And I noticed these old photographs on the wall.
San Miguel from other eras.
Canal street
The Jardin before the trees were trimmed,
The parroquia San Antonio
Which you will hardly recognize.

This is Calle Canal, with the view of the Quebrada Bridge

The Parroquia and Tower from the corner of Calle San Francisco - notice the cobblestones in the street and the wood cart street vendors.
