One of the Earliest Maps of San Francisco published in the City.

Finely detailed map of the populated areas of San Francisco, oriented to the west. The map extends west to Divisadero; south to Alta.

The present example is overprinted, to show distances at quarter mile intervals from Portsmouth Square and also includes numbered and lettered lots.

One interesting feature is the tracing of the original shoreline of San Francisco, showing just how much of the city is built on landfill.

Britton & Rey were located on Mongomery St at the corner with Commercial St. between 1854 and 1858 (Peters, California on Stone, p. 162).

The map is quite rare. This is the second example we have offered, the only other example being the Heckrotte Copy, which did not include the red overprinting.
