"Mission of San Diego"
Published by United States Senate, 1856
Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016
This superb reproduction of an original stone lithograph, colored by a later hand, was published in 1856 by the U.S. Senate. It was the result of a survey done by the U. S. Pacific Railroad to explore and determine the most practical route for a railroad running from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean.
In this view, a woman tends laundry drying on the clothesline in the foreground while the mission of San Diego is seen behind.
