Picture postcard, "San Diego Mission, Founded 1769, San Diego, California"

Description (Brief)
This postcard view of San Diego Mission was printed using photomechanical processes by the Van Ornum Colorprint Company in Los Angeles, Calif.
The Van Ornum Colorprint Company (1908-1921) was one of many picture postcard publishing companies producing historic landmark, and landscape scenes in California.
Mission San Diego de Alcalá, located in what is now called Mission Valley, was the first mission founded by Fr. Junípero Serra in 1769. It was the first of twenty-one Spanish Franciscan missions established in California between 1769 and 1823, and was built to convert American Indians of the Kumeyaay tribe to Catholicism.
Today the mission buildings include a parish church.
