1781, Founders of Los Angeles
Photograph of an engraving depicting the founders of Los Angeles, 1781. Musicians crash cymbals and play flutes in the left foreground while behind them, altar boys hold both a crucifix staff and a tall candle, backed by a hooded monk. To the right of them, a uniformed rifleman stands. Less assuming settlers are visible flying a flag in the background, on which a woman is embroidered. Mountains and birds are pictured in the distance behind them.
