This bird's-eye view is centered on Stockton and shows all of San Joaquin County. Notations in the image identify various crops including grain, barley, beans, potatoes, and vineyards. The "South San Joaquin Irrigation District" is identified in the southeastern portion of the county, and text at bottom states that irrigated farms had increased by 250% from 1900 to 1910. Additional illustrations and text are located at top and on verso. Likely issued by the local chamber of commerce with a note stating "used by permission of the San Joaquin Valley Counties' Association."
