The Quarters

I was outside the Quarters at Presidio La Bahia in Goliad taking photos of the exterior when a lady asked me if I’d like to photograph the inside. They were staying there the night and had not moved their things in yet. Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity to have a look inside.

I made this shot inside the living room of the Quarters. Per the Presidio’s website, after the restoration of Presidio La Bahia in the mid-1960's, the area now known as The Quarters was used by priests as housing. The Quarters is part of what used to be the officer's quarters, along the west wall of the presidio. For more information on the Quarters and how you can book your own stay in these historic accommodations, check out their website at http://www.presidiolabahia.org/quarters.htm.
