Decorative example of Kuchel & Dresel's view of Crescent City, published in San Francisco in 1857.

Charles C. Kuchel & Emil Dresel were among the earliest western view makers.  The pair published approximately 50 views between 1855 and 1859, of which 41 were California views, 7 were Oregon and the others were of Washington and Nevada towns.  The pair became active in 1855, producing 4 views in 1855, 16 in 1856 and 17 in 1857.  Kuchel & Dresel published their views both with and without the smaller vignettes around the primary subject matter.

The view is very rare.  Reps locates only 2 examples.
