Fine early view of San Francisco, looking out over the City from the West towards Yerba Buena Island.

Published only 5 years after the beginning of the Gold Rush in 1849, the view shows the boom town and remarkable growth of the City.   Though by this time San Francisco was a bustling, robust settlement, it was still quite a small community, with the buildings merging rapidly into the rural surrounding hills. 

Condition Description: Evidence of fold splitting near the bottom of the map.
