San Francisco, 1846

Vintage San Francisco "Birds Eye View" Map

San Francisco was once called Yerba Buena, Twin Peaks was known as Los Pechos de la Choco, and you could find Still's Blacksmith Shop on the North side of Washington Street, just above Kerney. These are just a few of the many features annotated in this astounding mid-nineteenth century birds-eye view of San Francisco from the East. In the middle of it all you'll find the USS Portsmouth surrounded by a flotilla of US Transports, Schooner's and Merchant ships.

The original from which this reproduction was made is in the collection of the Library of Congress. Known as bird's-eye views and panoramic maps, representations such as this depict cities and towns as if viewed from above at an oblique angle. Although not generally drawn to scale, they show street patterns, individual buildings and major landscape features in perspective. To learn more, see this Wikipedia entry.

We are now offering a growing collection of vintage maps that can be custom printed to your choice of size.
