California Indian laundry

La Purisima mission, Solvang, California

"I coaxed Bob into climbing down into the laundry cistern where the Chumash Indian
'slaves' did the Padre's laundry and their own bathing. Some other tourists were having a
picnic nearby and laughed at Bob's antics. I told them, 'Don't even ask!'" --Doris

Thanks to Bob for phooning and to Doris for the photo idea.
