Rounding the corner of the hallway, the visitor is greeted with the distant image of a mural at the end of the long hallway, lit by a single uncovered bulb. As one approaches, the Virgin of Guadalupe appears in the mural, obfuscated by the intervening centuries. Patron Saint of the Americas, she is present in the 16th century Ex-Convento de San Pablo Apostol in Yuriria, Michoacan. This original photograph forms part of the Olden Mexico collection.
