THE ALAMO, SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS: The Alamo, completed in 1718 as the 'Mission San Antonio De Valero' the Alamo was one of five Missions built along the shores of the San Antonio River. The Alamo commemorates the valiant efforts of Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, Colonel Travis and 186 Volunteers who sacrificed their lives on the 6th March 1836 as they struggled to hold the Alamo and achieve Texas' independence.

THE ORIGINAL FACADE: The major part of the surviving structure is the Facade, I have photographed it from various angles and colours.
