It is saddening to reflect that no great ancient races inhabited these lovely Isles, that no great man ever lived, and laboured, and worked, and fought, and died, and left a name for posterity to honour and to cherish as a ‘household word’; that no time-honoured tower or world-famed temple, or pilgrim haunted shrine ever stood on yonder cape—in short, that the past is all a blank.

San Antonio Village, Toledo, long ago

Aa few years after the church and school buildings were constructed. The stone building in the foreground was a clinic before the Polyclinic was built across from the Catholic primary school. The roof with arcade immediately behind that is over the school. Beyond that is the church. The roof behind that to the right of the entrance to the church is the residence, which is occasionally occupied.

This photo was taken where the San Antonio Police Station is, now. Looks like it was taken in the 1960s as the hill behind the church had board structures in the 70s and cement in the 80s.

The thatch in the foreground is so beautiful.

Ernesto Zaragoza: The church and school were built when Mr Juan Juarez was working for Toledo Catholic Mission as chief maintenance and stone worker. He was married in that church in 1950 to a San Antonio villager girl. He and two other mestizo men were builder and Mr. Juarez. Most of the other fellows were from the village. I met Mr Juarez in 1969 whilst he was working still in San Antonio in the workshop.

Here a picture of Mr. Juan Juarez, who constructed San Luis Rey Church in San Antonio Village, Toledo. He was an employee of Toledo Catholic Mission.
