This scarce, early San Francisco directory is complete with folding map by Henry Langley. It shows the city at the end of the 19th century, with much of the street-grid pattern laid out. The large Golden Gate Park in the western portion of the city is simply named “park.”
Numerous docks in San Francisco Bay are identified and labeled including Fisherman’s Wharf. The verso of the map contains an advertisement for G. G. Wickson & Co., who sold appliances and farm equipment.
The accompanying large directory includes a resident index, business directory, local government guide, and copious amounts of advertising which altogether provide a fascinating glimpse of late 19th century San Francisco.
