Rare Sacramento Birds-Eye View 

Rare aerial view of Sacramento, published in Sacramento, with a detailed map of the city on the verso.

The view shows Sacramento from the west, looking toward the Sierra Nevada Mountains, with downtown Sacramento and the Sacramento River waterfront in the foreground, highlighting downtown businesses and other points of interest, with the names of dozens of business listed in the "Classified Business Directory" and shown on the map.

A fascinating stylized view, with several bi-planes soaring above the city.

On the verso is a street map of Sacramento. Illustrations include biplane and train transporting goods.

The cover title is "Map and Aero View of the City of Sacramento  The Heart of California".


The map is extremely rare.  We were only able to locate the example shown on line by the Center for Sacramento History.  

No examples listed in OCLC.
