SF Presidio Arguello gate (1027)
Intricate military detail on the top of the gateposts at the Arguello entrance to the SF Presidio. This image is a major portion of the Army shield, the MDCCLXXVIII is for 1778, when the Army shield was adopted. The uniform connecting the parts is a Roman cuirass, which was a piece of armour. See:
