Rare early view of Sonora, published in San Francisco by Kuchel & Dresel.

This is the center section of the view, lacking the title and the inset views which would have surrounded it.

Charles C. Kuchel and Emil Dresel were among the earliest western view makers. The pair published approximately 50 views between 1855 and 1859, of which 41 were California views, 7 were Oregon and the others were of Washington and Nevada towns. The pair became active in 1855, producing 4 views in 1855, 16 in 1856 and 17 in 1857. Kuchel & Dresel published their views both with and without the smaller vignettes around the primary subject matter.
