Photograph of half-tone prints of portraits of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo and Sebastian Viscaino, ca.1540 & ca.1600. Both from the chest up. They each wear pointed bears with handlebar moustaches and have medium-length curly hair. Cabrillo is turned slightly to his left, while Viscaino is turned slightly to his right. Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo was Commander of the Armada which sailed into the San Diego harbor on September 28, 1542. With his landing history, from a European perspective, began in California. Sebastian Viscaino explored the California coast in 1602, giving lasting names to many California areas: San Diego Bay, San Pedro Bay, Santa Catalina Island and Santa Barbara, for example.
