Description

It was 2 o'clock in the afternoon when this photograph was taken. The photo was taken after Angel Taca Tacbas came home from work. His work boots are still on. To the right of him is Maria Martinez Rangel (Susie Tacbas' mother). This photograph was taken before Angel and Maria were married. They were unable to get married in San Luis Obispo county. The judge refused to grant them a marriage license due to their large gap in age and because Angel was Filipino and Mary was Mexican.
