San Francisco, 1878

San Francisco, 1878, detailVintage San Francisco "Birds Eye View" Map

Pre-quake San Francisco in 1878, depicted from colorful Fisherman's Wharf in its hay-day.

1878 finds San Francisco at the beginning of the industrial revolution. A lot has changed in the 32 years since the previous map. San Francisco is no longer the pastoral Spanish settlement of "Yurba Buena." A close-up view reveals a Bay filled not only with schooners and clipper ships but paddle wheels and steamers.

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.

Example sizes and prices for prints only:

  • 16" x 22" -- $44
  • 20" x 27.5" -- $57
  • 24" x 33" -- $63

The framed example below is a 24" tall print, framed with a Larson Juhl Belmont Olve Wood, hand wrapped linen fabric mat with a silk hand-wrapped deep bevel accent and UV protective glass.

Framed as shown price: $500
