This long, narrow map depicts the entire Golden Gate Park from Baker Street to the Pacific Ocean, showing recreational buildings, roads, trails and monuments. Golden Gate Park was founded in 1871 in an unincorporated area west of San Francisco's city limits. It is similar in shape to New York's Central Park but is actually 20% larger in size. Issued on two joined sheets.
Condition Description: A bright and colorful example with light toning along the top margin and several short edge tears at bottom that just touch the neatline and have been closed on verso with archival tape. The bottom left corner of the sheet has been trimmed, resulting in a small loss of image.
