- Copyrights: All pictures were taken by amateur photographer Bruce Guthrie (me!) who retains copyright on them. Free for non-commercial use with attribution. See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
- Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at email@example.com and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

- Description of Subject Matter: This monument, a tribute to Father Junípero Serra, was erected near Camellia Grove in Capitol Park in 1965. A priest in the Franciscan order of the Catholic Church, Father Serra was charged with leading the development of the California mission system beginning in 1768.
Father Junípero Serra was born Miguel José Serra in 1713 on the small Spanish island of Mallorca. As a priest, Father Serra traveled to the New Spain colonial territory of Mexico in 1749 to devote himself to missionary work. Appointed head of the Spanish missions in 1767, he established his first mission in what is now the state of California at San Diego in 1769.
Before his death in 1784, Father Junípero Serra helped to establish nine Spanish missions in California:
* Mission of San Diego, July 16, 1769
* Mission San Carlos Borromeo, June 3, 1770
* Mission San Antonio de Padua, July 14, 1771
* Mission San Gabriel, September 8, 1771
* Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosam September 1, 1772
* Mission San Francisco de Asis, June 29, 1776
* Mission San Juan Capistrano, November 1, 1776
* Mission Santa Clara de Asis, January 12, 1777
* Mission San Buenaventura, March 31, 1782
