Photographer's Note

This is an interior shot of what remains of the round mortuary building at the Tumacacori Mission in Southern Arizona. When in use, a pole would have extended high enough to support a platform to rest a corpse on in the center of this room. There was a matching hole opposite of the one seen here upper center, which held the pole which supported the body. This building is constructed from adobe bricks.
