Summary expansion
Cervantes (1898-1953) was an engineer, photographer, and historic preservationist, who spent his life researching, measuring, drawing, and photographing the architectural and decorative arts of colonial Mexico. His photographs of Morelia include panoramas of the city, views of leafy streets, the city aqueduct, and architectural details (towers, cupola, roof ornamentation, doors, cloisters, patios) of buildings such as the cathedral, the Jesuit college of San Javier, the Palacio de Gobierno, the Palacio Municipal, and the Museo Michoacano. There are also exterior and interior views of the early 19th-century Casa de Morelos, and various convents, including the convents of San Agustín, Santa Catarina, and del Carmen. Churches pictured include Templo de las Rosas, the Jesuit Templo de la Compañía, Templo de San José, Templo del Carmen, Templo de San Diego, Templo de la Merced, and the Templo de Capuchinas
