Photograph of the Jose Mascarel adobe at 721 Castelar Street in Sonora Town, Los Angeles, ca.1905. A man dressed in a dark suit and hat, possibly Jose Mascarel, stands next to the large adobe with one hand on his hip and the other on the adobe's outside wall. The adobe itself, built in 1842 by by Francisco Garcia and sold to Rafael Carrasco in 1852, stretches towards the right background, approximately sixty feet long. It sports a shingled roof and four-paned glass windows. A picket fence extends from the narrow wall to the left, enclosing a garden. A palm tree can be seen in the distance to the right.
