The Sunday porch: Puebla, Mexico

Veranda restaurant of the Hotel Diligencias, Puebla, Mexico, between 1880 and 1897, by William Henry Jackson, via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division (both photos).

The veranda seems to go around the second floor of an internal courtyard.

I believe this is the same eating area from the other side.

Puebla was once a layover point for those traveling between Veracruz and Mexico City. In the 1880s, Jackson had a commission to take photographs of the Mexican Central Railroad.
