Rare Early Lettersheet View of San Francisco
Panoramic view from Pacific Heights of densely populated city and harbor; Telegraph Hill and Russian Hill at left; Yerba Buena Island and bay in distance; artist sketching, onlookers and workers in foreground.
The view was originally issued as the top portion of a larger lettersheet, intended as stationary. The size is noteworthy, as most lettersheets were approximately 8.5 x 11 inches.
The lettersheet is very rare on the market, as is the later state, illustrating the San Francisco Fire of July 11th.
Lettersheet on thin paper, laid on a larger sheet.
