This collection includes lantern slides of eleven California missions, all of which are portrayed through artists’ renderings
or through photographs. The missions are shown in states of past affluence and of then present disrepair. The slides are meant
to accompany a slideshow lecture given by Mrs. Lou K. Ross to educate Los Angeles club groups about the condition of the missions
in the 1920s.
