      Mission style or “Spanish Colonial” architecture is a California signature. San Luis Rey de Francia was founded in 1798, yet shares many of the features of Los Angeles’ Union Station. Compare with The Huntington’s capture of the station to see just how similar in line and form these buildings really are. 

      We’re teaming up The Huntington’s tumblr to bring you historic Los Angeles images on Wednesdays through August 6 as part of No Further West.
