The original two-story house on the site was demolished in 1979. Do you remember that house and want to find a photo of it as an example of a house you would like to buy? The Sanborn maps at the California Room of the Martin Luther King Library show the footprint of the original house. Check the City of San Jose building permits online (see link below) for copies of reports related to the demolition. You are likely to find a photo of the house there. If you are unable to view the scanned documents on your browser, you can go to City Hall on Santa Clara Street and use the terminals there. Hope this helps.

Simon,
You might try to find a copy of a great history book titled "The Alameda, The Beautiful Way".
Try this link into Amazon.com where there are several used copies available.
It has many historical photographs and articles and might well include the the property you are interested in.
