(ca. 1875) - A closer panoramic view of the San Fernando Mission and the Valley looking south, circa 1875. A clearing stands in the foreground, separated from the buildings of the mission by a line of trees. The buildings stand mainly to the left: a long, two-story adobe can be seen most prominently, surrounded by smaller buildings. The ruins of shorter adobes stand to the right as well. Dirt roads and tree-dappled flatland extends behind them towards the mountains in the distance.

(ca. 1875) - Photograph of a front exterior view of the Mission San Fernando Rey de España ruins showing corridors, taken by photographer Edward Vischer, before 1875. A two-story adobe building stands to the left, visible behind the remains of adobe walls. The building's walls are losing their spackle and a glassless window can be seen on the top floor. To the right, the columns that once belonged to the patio that extended from the main building are visible, partially unroofed. The tiles of both the patio and main-building roofs are terracotta and in disrepair themselves. Tall grass can be seen in the foreground.
