Mission San Juan Capistrano.[c. 1910] Stock Code: 65001
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. Mission San Juan Capistrano was founded in 1776 and is home to the oldest building in California still in use, a chapel built in 1782. It is well known for its beautiful architecture, picturesque ruins, and the swallows that nest there in spring.

Ink stamp of the Santa Barbara Free Public Library, red pen mark, and Haines blind stamp to verso. A few small marks, crease to lower left corner. Very good condition. Presented in hand finished stained oak frame with UV glass.
