- Description (Brief)
- This postcard view of the Pala Mission Tower was printed by the Detroit Publishing Company in about 1910, using a copyrighted photolithographic process called "Photostint."
- The Detroit Publishing Company (previously known as the Detroit Photographic Company) was first listed in Detroit city directories in 1888. Its manager, William A. Livingstone, invited the famous landscape photographer William Henry Jackson to join the company as a partner in 1897. Jackson brought with him his own photographic images, which would be used by the company.
- San Antonio de Pala Asistencia was an ancillary mission to Mission San Luis Rey de Francia, which was the eighteenth of twenty-one Spanish Franciscan missions founded in California between 1769 and 1823. The mission and ancillary mission were established to convert American Indians of the Kumeyaay and Luiseno tribes to Catholicism.
- Today San Antonio de Pala Asistencia continues to minister to an American Indian community.
