Description
Photograph of a drawing by Edward Vischer depicting the Mission San Jose in upper California, ca.1866. Horse-drawn carriages and carts move along the dirt road to the left while a small man in a poncho leads his horse away from the hitching post at right, which is situated next to the mission's picket fence. The mission is partially visible behind it and a line of shrub foliage, showing a main, two-story adobe building topped by a cross to the left, and a long one-story annex to its right which extends further to have a dilapidated roof with terracotta tiles. Text written-in below the image identifies the area and site, and reads: "drawn August 16, 1866". Picture file card reads "The right side of picture, where the flagpole stands, is where the first California State Legislature Met--1849.".
