Well, not quite 100 years ago but close to it.  These photos were taken sometime in or around the 1920s in Inarajan.

Notice it's the men front and center at the feast of the patriarch, Saint Joseph, all in their white shirts.  They carry Saint Joseph on an åndas just as they did this year, almost a hundred years later.  The women follow behind with their white handkerchiefs for veils.

Inarajan Church around the same time, before the present one was built between 1939 and 1940.  That's the konbento (casa parroquial) on the right.  Did you know that while the patron saint of the village is San Jose, the patron of the church is Nuestra Señora de la Consolación (Our Lady of Consolation)?
