The Mission San Gabriel Arcángel is located at 428 S Mission Dr., San Gabriel, CA 91776.
According to the Los Angeles Public Library, the above photo depicts a tall cactus hedge that once surrounded the mission, circa 1860. Because the mission doesn’t appear to be in the photo, the hedge was probably created as a kind of fence to protect it and its immediate grounds. (LAPL 00079248)
