Early set of two maps, printed front and back, one showing the Berkeley and Oakland areas, alongside a second more detailed map of the University of California (Berkeley).

The Berkeley plan provides a nice view of the area, including streets, major buildings, railroad lines, etc. The map of the university shows the still-growing campus, with over one hundred places of interest labeled. The detail extends into neighboring streets as far as Dwight Way, Shattuck Avenue, and Virginia Street, now home to many university buildings, student residences, and iconic Berkeley landmarks.

Advertisements for various Berkeley area services, many targeted at students or their families, are shown. The text describes the history of the university and its surroundings.

The text references the 1930 census, thus providing a likely age for the work. This is an uncommon item. It is the first time we have offered this map for sale.
