Abstract: Depicts the Plaza de Armas y Alfonso XIII and San Juan's city hall, on the left. The U.S. military occupied the building at the time. Two streetcars pass the buildings.
General Note: "On the north side of the plaza is the Ayuntamiento, a reproduction of the Municipal Building or Casa del Rey of Madrid. Originally an old residence, the city bought and reconstructed it between 1796-99. The facade is featured by two graceful towers, one housing a chime clock placed there in 1819. Under there two towers, and connecting them, is an arcade wall in traditional romantic style." -- WPA Guide, 1940. The square has been renamed Plaza Baldorioty de Castro. The seedlings bordering the square and barely visible here have grown into large, shady trees.
