This is a fine print reproduction of a bright and generously decorated pictorial map that is thought to be the largest of such maps featuring San Francisco.
Populated with comic characters depicting various aspects of the city, the map with its whimsical vignettes and explanatory texts illustrates both the modern city of 1927 and its earlier history, including both the earthquake and the fire. Godwin took great pains to illustrate the map, detailing streets, parks, churches, schools and government buildings.
Also depicted is a scroll featuring population, industry, products and postal services; another scroll names major bank of the city, and a third lists its theaters.
