Photograph of the old mill of the Mission San Gabriel, El Molino Viejo, ca.1887. Gutzon Borglum (or Charles Lummis) and wife (née Mrs. Putnam) pose in front, she is painting a picture of the grist mill. When Helen Hunt Jackson was in Southern California in 1884, young Borglum was working in the Bixby stables, and was employed to drive Mrs. Jackson out to San Jacinto and to other trips in search for her material on her book Ramona. About 1887-1888 he painted portraits of General and Mrs. Fremont from pictures taken at the time of their marriage, also painted stage for Calvin Chase of Hotel Nadeau. His father was a physician and lived on Seventh Street on north side west of Kip Street. By 1887 when this photo was made, the famed Old Mill was in a dilapidated condition. Mr. and Mrs. Edward T. Mayberry, whose home was nearby, had put it to use as sleeping quarters for their ranch hands. Portions of the lower floor became a wine cellar. In the foreground, at the left, is one of the huge stone buttresses which supports the building at three corners.
