Description

Handsome map of San Francisco before the 1906 earthquake. Includes a list of important buildings and institutions.

Many interesting features of late 19th century San Francisco are found on this elegant map, including: the cemeteries at Lone Mountain, the Southern Pacific Railroad lines arriving from the southern peninsula, the Alms House Tract (Laguna Honda hospital today), Spring Valley Water Company reservoir, and more.

A prominent ‘China Town’ is labeled.

Several spurious street names are shown in the Marina, including Tonguin and Lewis. These were planned to be on landfill but were never actually created; Tonguin street is instead Marina Boulevard and Lewis is Marina Green Drive.
