SF Presidio Arguello gate (1027)

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:

Took those photos with you and a few others specifically in mind. I'd driven past them for years, but had never paid that close attention.

I just added more detail to explain some parts of this one.

Thanks, I'm familiar with it already, and I do like to look at them.
