This postcard view of the painting "Old Padres spreading the Gospel to the Indians, Old Mission Plaza Church, Los Angeles" was printed by George Rice & Sons (1879-1993) in Los Angeles, Calif. in 1913 using photomechanical processes.
Mission Nuestra Señora Reina de Los Ángeles Asistencia was founded in 1784 as an ancillary mission to Mission San Gabriel Arcángel, the fourth of twenty-one Spanish Franciscan missions established in California between 1769 and 1823. Mission Nuestra Señora was built to convert American Indians of the Tongva tribe to Catholicism.
Today the mission serves as a chapel.
