The chart stretches from North Point to Mission de Delores and Pt. San Quentin. Streets are clearly laid out and named with terrific detail down to individual buildings. Contour lines at 20 ft. intervals show elevation. Extant buildings are shown in black along the streets in both San Francisco and Mission de Dolores, which are connected by a 'plank road'. Sixteen public buildings and 15 reservoirs are indicated by numbers keyed to an inset. A great and early plan.


Condition: A

Professionally backed with Japanese tissue to strengthen the typically thin paper. A great and early plan.
