This is a well rendered steel engraved view of San Francisco from a high vantage point. The harbor is filled with sailing ships, and scores of individual buildings are clearly identifiable. Alcatraz Island is in the background while people and horses fill the foreground. A very nice and uncommon view of the city that was produced by Charles Magnus, 12 Frankfort Street, New-York.
Full margins and fine impression, but with some scattered foxing visible in the sky and blank margins.
