Description
Photograph of the Mission San Gabriel bell tower, ca.1915. A cross sits atop the bell tower, which hosts six slots of various sizes for its bells. Several palm trees stand in the foreground at the base of the tower, and other sprinklings of foliage sit in a plant box by an arched doorway, at center.
Back of Postcard reads: "From Florence Walker, La Jolla, California. Here came the gentle Padres long ago and planted first the Cross upon these shores to bring glad tidings to the Western land. So what more fitting than from here should go a message of good-will to you and yours the holy teachings of that sacred land".
