These are the buildings that are truly one with the soil and history of California. Made of its earth and oriented to its sun, they are a testimony to the simplicity of a vanished way of life that flourished in the half-century between 1817 and 1867. Some are the unpretentious homes of the early settlers who brought the ancient art of adobe construction from their native Spain or Mexico. Others reflect the growing prosperity of California, incorporating the exterior and interior design of eastern colonial American homes.

With accompanying text describing the history of Monterey, its adobes and their inhabitants, ADOBES IN THE SUN is not only a compelling photographic study but also is a unique guide to California history. Through these earthen sunbaked dwellings, we catch a glimpse of another, more tranquil era.
