Inscription. As early as 1877, this land was the site of an adobe residence where Mrs. Kate Womble operated a boarding house popular among travelers to San Antonio. The house appeared on the 1873 city map. The Sanborn Insurance maps show it as late as 1904. The street, now named for King Philip V of Spain, who ruled from 1700 to 1746, was previously called Womble Alley. By 1927 the adobe house had been demolished. The property remained vacant until the NYA restoration of La Villita. This building was built at that time and was designated a kitchen in a 1952 map. It was later enclosed for use as a shop.
