Photograph of a birdseye view of Mission Valley in Santa Barbara, ca.1905. Three houses can be seen scattered in the clearing in the basin of the valley, trees, hills and mountain peaks surrounding them on either side. At center, a two-story split-level house can be seen, with a similar cabin seen from the side farther back at the right. Still farther out, a two-story house of a much lighter color than the first two can be seen, just on the edge of a hill and what appears to be an orchard. Mountains and rolling hills fill the background.
