Picture postcard, "San Carlos Borroméo (El Carmel Mission) near Monterey, California - 1770."

Description (Brief)
This postcard view of San Carlos Borroméo (El Carmel Mission) was printed by the Curt Teich Company of Chicago using photomechanical processes. The card was published 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. It used the term "photochrom," later "colortone,' to describe its color printing processes.
Mission San Carlos Borroméo del rio Carmelo is situated on the Monterey Peninsula in Carmel, Calif. It was the second of twenty-one Spanish Franciscan missions to be established in California between 1769 and 1823, and was built to convert American Indians of the Esselen and Ohlone, or Costanoan, tribes to Catholicism. It was moved from its original location in Monterey to its present site in 1771.
Today the mission in Carmel Valley serves as a parish church.
