Picture postcard, "Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, California - 1722"

Description (Brief)
This postcard view of Mission San Luis Obispo De Tolosa was printed by the Curt Teich Company using photomechanical processes. It was published in about 1914 by the I. L. Eno Company in San Diego, Calif.
The Chicago-based Curt Teich Company manufactured postcards between 1898 and 1978 in association with several publishers. The company used the term "photochrom," later "colortone," to describe its color printing processes.
Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, located in San Luis Obispo County, was founded in 1772 by Fr. Junípero Serra. It was the fifth of twenty-one Spanish Franciscan missions established in California between 1769 and 1823, and was built to convert American Indians of the Chumash tribe to Catholicism.
Today the mission serves as a parish church.
