1976 Roberta's Santa Barbara Postcard -Oct.2

Mission Santa Barbara postcard mailed 1976. Captioned: Founded 1786, Santa Barbara, California. Lovely "Queen of the Missions," Santa Barbara is the only mission in the California chain in which the Franciscans found a continuous haven after the cruel decree of secularization took away their lands.  Today famous twin bell towers are reflected in the ancient fountain.

[postmarked 2 Oct 1976]
