Picture postcard, "Mission, San Buenaventura, Cal, 1783"

Description (Brief)
This postcard view of Mission San Buenaventura was printed by the Curt Teich Company of Chicago using photomechanical processes. It was published about 1915 by the Eno & Matteson company in San Diego.
The Curt Teich Company manufactured postcards between 1898 and 1978 in association with many publishers. The firm used the term "Photochrom," later "Colortone," to describe its color printing processes.
Mission San Buenaventura is located in the city of Ventura. It was the ninth 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 and a museum.
