This postcard view of Santa Barbara Mission was printed by the Van Ornum Colorprint Company (1908-1921) and the M. Kashower Company (1914-1934) in Los Angeles, Calif. using photomechanical processes. The companies are examples of the many picture postcard publishing firms producing scenic views of California landmarks during this period.
Mission Santa Barbara was founded on December 4th, 1786. The tenth of twenty-one Spanish Franciscan missions founded in California between 1769 and 1823, it was built to convert American Indians of the Chumash tribe to Catholicism.
Today the mission serves as a parish church and includes a museum, a Franciscan friary, or monastery, and a retreat center.
