Early view of a portion of Redwood City, centered on the home of Pioneer settler George Wentworth (1830-1888).

George Wentworth moved from New Hampshire to California during the gold rush at the age of 19, where he settled early in Redwood City. He came to work as a cattle herder for Miller and Lux, after which he went into the stock raising business on the Dennis Martin place. He worked a butchering for JQA Tilton, and afterwards for John Hancock at the same business in Redwood City. In the early 1860s, he purchased interest in the Pioneer Livery stables, which he conducted from time to time until 1875, when he engaged in farming and running a Tannery. 

The view appeared in Moore & De Pue's Illustrated History of San Mateo County.
