Incomplete example of William F. Sawsey's decorative bird's-eye view of San Francisco, lithographed by the great 19th-century California lithographer Edward Bosqui.
This schematized view to the west shows six ships in the harbor and recreates the simple street patterns of early San San Francisco. Clay, Kearney [sic], Washington and Montgomery Streets are identified. The buildings are keyed by thirty-five numbers to a printed list below the illustration with letter references to ships such as the USS Portsmouth. Two arrows are shown for the "Trail to Presidio" and "Trail to Mission Dolores".
