Picture It — The barrio #mfrwauthor #PictureIt

Picture It

I’ve decided to try to start a Thursday feature on my blog — a feature that requires little writing, hence time. Each Thursday I’ll post a photograph I’ve taken. I find these photos interesting and hopefully some of you will, too.

This picture of a church was taken in the old part of Tucson, Arizona, called the barrio. Before air conditioning made the desert more bearable, Tucson was a very small city despite being one of the oldest settlements in the United States. Archaeologists have found traces of settlements dating as far back as 2100 BC.

This church is NOT from that original settlement.



  1. Nice. Thanks for sharing the picture and history.

    1. And thanks to you for stopping by, Mary!

  2. Is it still in use, Ed? Looks almost like a warehouse!

    1. No, it was suppressed (closed) a year or two before I took this picture. Now it just sits empty.
