Picture postcard, "Mission San Jose de Guadalupe, San Jose, California - 1797"

Description (Brief)
This postcard view of Mission San Jose de Guadalupe was printed by the Curt Teich Company of Chicago using photomechanical processes. The card was published in about 1914 by the I. L. Eno Company in San Diego, Calif.
The Curt Teich Company manufactured postcards between 1898 and 1978 in association with several publishers. The company used the term "Photochrom" later "Colortone" to describe its color printing processes.
Mission San Jose (formerly and incorrectly assigned the name "Guadalupe") is located near the city of Fremont. It was the fourteenth of twenty-one Spanish Franciscan missions established in California between 1769 and 1823. The mission was founded to convert American Indians of the Miwok, Patwin, Costanoan, and Yokuts tribes to Catholicism.
Today the mission serves as a parish church and a museum.
