This postcard view of Pala Mission Chapel was printed by the Van Ornum Colorprint Company in Los Angeles, Calif. using photomechanical processes.
The Van Ornum Colorprint Company (1908-1921) was one of many picture postcard publishing companies producing scenes of California landscape and history.
Pala Mission or San Antonio de Pala Asistencia, founded in 1816, is situated about 25 miles northeast of Oceanside. It was an ancillary mission to the Mission San Luis Rey de Francia, the eighteenth of twenty-one Spanish Franciscan missions built in California between 1769 and 1823.
Today the mission is the only of the twenty-one original Spanish Franciscan missions which continues to minister to an American Indian community.
