E50 - 1833 San Francisco Bay Map by Beechey

Early seafaring explorers from Spain, France and England sailed their ships along the West coast of America and often past the entrance to San Francisco Bay because it was shrouded in fog. Originally settled by Ohlone-speaking Yelamu tribe, San Francisco would be mapped by Spanish explorer Don Gaspar de Portolá in 1769 and later become a Spanish colony in 1776, with missions established throughout the area. Once the Bay had been properly explored and mapped out for navigation, Europeans began to settle within its boundaries and take advantage of the many natural resources they discovered. In 1821, Mexico gained independence from Spain and they renamed the small port town Yerba Buena. As seen in this detailed map, sailing into the Bay became easier with the aid of images like this one from 1833. It would not be until the end of the Mexican-American War in 1848 that the Bay and surrounding areas became part of the United States.

“Very rare and important chart of San Francisco Bay, the result of the first scientific mapping of the Bay. The chart had a wide influence upon later maps of the area. The chart, with copies and adaptations of it, served to the end of the Mexican period and formed the substantial basis of the earliest ones produced under the American regime. It was deficient only in the region beyond Carquinez Strait. The chart of the entrance contains additional hydrographic data pertinent to entering the port and reaching the chief places of anchorage. Accompanying the chart are elevation views depicting the approaches to the bay and the hazards to navigation.” davidrumsey.com

E50 - 1848 Yerba Buena Cove JC Ward

1848 Pre Gold Rush San Francisco - JC Ward

Here we can see the bucolic Yerba Buena Cove before the San Francisco Gold Rush began in earnest. In fact, San Francisco was named after this local "good flower" from the mint family, and had a population of only a few hundred persons on average during the Mexican era from 1821-1848. As the main port for ships coming into the Bay, Yerba Buena Cove is now the area of present-day downtown San Francisco and is one of the first places you will see while on this cruise.

Yerba Buena cove, also swelled with ships. The frenzy was so great that many ships would dock in Yerba Buena cove and then be left behind by the crew and the owners, who were all seeking their fortune in the hills.

E50 - 1848 Gold Region Larkin

David Rumsey Library @ Stanford

This map is important because it was the first one to be widely printed and show the locations of gold mines in California. Made by an enterprising merchant and later U.S. Consul to the Republic of California, Thomas Oliver Larkin spurred the Gold Rush of 1849 and forever altered the course of history in the San Francisco Bay.

E50 - 1850 San Francisco Post Office

NYPL 1850 San Francisco Post Office

The discovery of gold in 1849 completely transformed the city. San Francisco was overrun with people seeking their fortune in the eastern hills across the Bay. The city's sleepy population swelled from 800 to 25,000 in a matter of months. This image shows a post office swarmed by individuals hoping to change their lives with a nugget of gold. Over 300,000 prospectors came to the Bay area during the period of 1848-1852, with half of them arriving by sea. During this time, California began to build its infrastructure and officially became a State in the Union on September 9th, 1850.

E50 - 2017 San Francisco Buried Ships Michael Warner

"Beneath contemporary streets of San Francisco lie the remains of many sailing ships that brought people to San Francisco during the gold rush that began in 1849. The ships have different stories, but many were used at storage as the city's shoreline was expanded outward around them by landfill--some of these and other abandoned ships burned in fires and were buried afterward." San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park

E50 - San Francisco Treasure Island 1939 Ruth Taylor White

“Born in 1899, Ruth Taylor and her family, like many, headed persistently west in the late 19th century, moving from East Coast to West in the span of about 20 years and finally settling in California. According to the 1920 US Census, Taylor seemed to be settling into a pretty normal life--she was married to Leonard White and living in Phoenix, Arizona. Leonard was a life insurance salesman. Two kids followed, and so did divorce. With limited information, it’s easy to fill in the gaps and imagine a disastrous mismatch of temperaments, but all we know is that Ruth and her children moved to California and she began working as an illustrator. Ruth’s artistic training is unclear, but her family proved to be very important in her future work. Several of her early jobs were linked to her brother, Frank J. Taylor (1894-1972). Frank was a journalist and writer, served in World War I, and attended Stanford University. That school connection probably helped Ruth earn one of her early commissions, the cover of the November 1927 The Stanford Illustrated Review.” swaen.com

E37 - San Francisco, by Chevalier, 1915 B&W

“Map of San Francisco on sheet 47x54, folded in paper covers 18x8. Copyrighted by August Chevalier, 1915. Shows the "Ground plan of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition. Relief shown by contours. Includes legend. Shows wards, city blocks, streets, railroads, bridges, tunnels, places of interest, important buildings are drawn in vignettes. Includes index to places of interest at the lower panel and index to theatres, railway depots and post offices at upper right. "Car lines" shown in red. Includes index and text on verso. See our other maps of San Francisco by Chevalier, from which this map is taken.” davidrumsey.com

“August Chevalier (fl. c. 1903 – 1932) was a San Francisco based lithographer active in the first decades of the 20th century. Chevalier is a remarkably elusive figure and little is known of his personal or professional life. He is best known for his large and magnificent topographical map of San Francisco boldly known as 'The Chevalier.' His few other maps also, almost exclusively, focus on San Francisco and the surrounding communities.” geographicus.com

E50 - 1906 San Francisco Burn Area

“A map of the area of San Francisco burned in the 1906 earthquake, with a overlay half-toned in red of the dramatic fire. The map appears to have been derived from one published in Leslie's Magazine shortly after the earthquake. See ID #1154, "Destruction of One of the Greatest Modern Cities" (1906). A comparison of these two images shows how the use of color and graphics can dramatically change the impact of a map. Despite the sensationalist impression conveyed by Lee's map, the text legend ("Plain Facts") emphasizes that "the beautiful Golden Gate city" has not been "entirely destroyed" and the "new San Francisco will be grander and more beautiful." See also ID #1155, "Ideal Picture and Map of San Francisco," 1906. This map is tipped into the front of Searight's book, published by the publishers of the map, Laird & Lee. However, the map is mentioned nowhere in the book, nor does it appear in the lengthy "List of Illustrations" in the book. It appears that the map was added after publication, which explains why it is found only in a small number of copies. Red is often used to emphasize the significance of fire or other hazards.” PJ Mode

E37 - San Francisco, by Harrison Godwin, 1927

“Unlike many other antique maps of San Francisco, this one is covered in illustrations highlighting points of interest and historical events. The streets are essentially the same and they’re all labeled well enough that you can see if your apartment used to be a cemetery, a slaughterhouse, or an old railroad car barn. The map was originally mass-produced for tourists and I’ve seen a few different copies online. One was found in the forgotten depths of someone’s closet in 2011, and a Redditor mentioned in the comment thread that they had an original framed copy on their wall at home. In 2012, a copy of the map sold on eBay for $1,400.” The Bold Italic

“Harrison Godwin (1899 - 1984) was an American cartoonist and hotelier active in California during the early to middle parts of the 20th century. Harrison was a cartoonist with the Los Angeles Examiner and published two daily strips. With regard to cartographic material he published just three maps, San Francisco, Hollywood and North America, all between the years of 1927 and 1929. The San Francisco and Hollywood maps were first and second maps in a planned series of American cities, each taking some three months to complete. Curiously, no further maps in the series materialized. In addition to his cartoon work Harrison, in partnership with his brother Fred, owned Carmel's La Playa Hotel, where Harrison worked as a manager. Harrison and Fred Godwin and are credited with popularizing Carmel as a tourist destination. Little else is known of his life.” geographicus.com
