TJPMD is located in a two story townhouse ion a row of art deco buildings
that were built in the 1920s in what is now called the Studio Tract.
Because of the excellent weather all year round in San Mateo, this area was
chosen by Universal Studios in the 1920s as production area for movies.
TJPMDs headquarters was originally a work shop living space for cabinetmakers
and other crafts persons in the motion picture industry. Although little
agriculture is left in the area, you can visualize the rows of walnut trees in
nearby orchards that were prominent in the 1900s. About 1/4 mile from
TJPMD is located the site of the original San Mateo Assestencia which was part
of the Spanish Mission system in the 1700s and later the Ranch San Mateo during
