San Francisco, 1900
76 x 61 cm (30 x 24 in)
Fine representation of San Francisco before the great earthquake and fire of 1906, in particularly attractive colors. It depicts many interesting 19th century features of the city, including Sutro Baths and Heights, the railway at today's Land's End, old rancho designations, waterworks, new land developments, the Lone Mountain cemeteries, and more.
Henry W. Faust issued at least 17 editions of his map of San Francisco both in pocket form (accompanied by a street directory, city guide, or both, or neither) and as wall maps. All editions of this map are uncommon and sought after.
