Fine representation of San Francisco before the great earthquake and fire of 1906, in particularly attractive colors. It depicts many interesting 19th century features of the city, including Sutro Baths and Heights, the railway at today’s Land’s End, old rancho designations, waterworks, new land developments, the Lone Mountain cemeteries, and more.
