DETAILS

This is a rare c. 1850 German lithograph view of Sacramento, California. The map depicts the city of Sacramento from the waterfront on the Sacramento River towards the city down J Street. Numerous buildings are illustrated along the waterfront and along J Street, as well as workers and their horses. Buildings materials are stacked along the shoreline at the lower right. Various kinds of ships are moored along the riverfront, including sailing ships and a sidewheel steamship. Rowboats are used to ferry people and goods from the ships to the shore. Two American flags are flying from two of the ships. A Republic of Texas flag flies from the mast of one of the other ships moored along the shoreline.

This view was printed by J. Hesse around 1850 and published by a German magazine.
