Additional Details:
San Jose the Guadalupe, near Warm Springs, Alameda County, the fourteenth Mission, and the only one on the east side of San Francisco bay, was founded June 11, 1797. Many maps erroneously show this Mission at the present city of San Jose, which was an old Spanish Pueblo three miles form the Mission of Santa Clara, with which it was connected by "The Alameda", a road lined with willow trees planted by Fr. Maguin Catala. The original picture of Mission San Jose, shown on this card, is from a rare daguerreotype made before the destruction of the edifice.
