Mission San Francisco de Solano.[c. 1910] Stock Code: 64970
NotesOne of a series of photos taken by William Amos Haines (1877-1953), who travelled through the United States in the first decades of the 20th century making early panoramas with a rotating Kodak Cirkut camera. He was particularly interested in California's Spanish missions, and took photographs of a number of these sites around 1910. Founded in 1823, Mission San Francisco de Solano was the 21st and final Californian mission, erected as a bulwark against Russian encroachment into Alta California. Restoration was completed in 1913 and today it is part of the Sonoma State Historic Park.

Ink stamp of the Santa Barbara Free Public Library and red pen mark to verso. Some minor creasing and pinholes at upper corners. Very good condition. Presented in hand finished stained oak frame with UV glass.
