Picture postcard, "Interior San Fernando Mission, Founded 1797, San Fernando, California"

Description (Brief)
This postcard view of Mission San Fernando was printed by the Van Ornum Colorprint Company in Los Angeles, Calif. in about 1910, using photomechanical processes. The Van Ornum Colorprint Company (1908-1921) was one of many picture postcard publishing companies producing California landmark scenes.
Mission San Fernando was founded in 1797, in the San Fernando Valley. It was the seventeenth of twenty-one Spanish Franciscan missions to be established in California between 1769 and 1823, and was built to convert American Indians of the Tataviam and Tongva tribes to Catholicism.
Today it serves as a working parish chapel and a museum.
