Mission San Fernando Rey de Espan~a (originally La Misio´n del Sen~or Fernando, Rey de Espan~a) was the seventeenth mission built in Alto California. It was built in a quadrangle, similar to other missions. Founded by father Fermi´n Lasue´n on September 8, 1797 in Mission Hills, it is located on the former settlement of Encino Rancho. In 1999 is was added to the National Register of Historic Places-Building #71001076. It has also been dedicated as California Historic Landmark #157. It continues to serve as a parish church.
Photograph caption dated October 4, 1949 reads, "Guadalupe A. Herrera places a tile on a form, ready to move it out into the sun for the 'slow-bake' part of the tile-manufacturing process--the sun drying. This brick already has been baked. Now it must dry in the sun until workers are ready to use it, with scores of others, in roofing the workshops." Workers are participating in the restoration of the Mission San Fernando Rey de Espan~a in California.; See images #00119789 through #00119795 for all photos in this series.
