This exceptional bird’s eye view of San Francisco presents the city from the bay, looking west towards Golden Gate and the Pacific Ocean. At the time of printing, the city was experiencing a sense of triumph and jubilation.

It was just six years ago San Francisco nearly succumbed to a devastating earthquake and widespread fires that engulfed and destroyed much of the city. Now they were preparing to host the Panama–Pacific International Exposition / World’s Fair, (shown on the north side of the peninsula) in a city that had been almost completely rebuilt and was experiencing notable economic activity and growth in population.

As with most maps and views, the closer one looks, the more they will find. This cannot be understated with this incredible print as hundreds of buildings are labeled and presented with exquisite detail as are the many streets, parks, and wharfs. The unique topography of the city is also shown in realistic detail and the bay is teaming activity as sail and steam powered ships make their way in and out of San Francisco Bay.

An exceptional view of a most unique city during a very exciting time in history.

What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
