This postcard view of San Fernando 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 companies producing California landmark scenes during this period.
The San Fernando Rey de España mission was founded on September 8, 1797, near the site of the first gold discovery in Alta, or Upper, California. It was the seventeenth of twenty-one Spanish Franciscan missions built in California between 1769 and 1823, and was established to convert American Indians of the Tataviam and Tongva tribes to Catholicism.
Today it serves as a working parish church and a museum.
