Description


This is a c. 1938 pocket map or plan of the city of San Francisco by Thomas Bros. It depicts the city of San Francisco from the Golden Gate Bridge to Lake Merced and from the Pacific Ocean to Hunter's Point. Highly detailed, nearly all streets in the city are labeled, along with parks, cemeteries and clubs, including Golden Gate Park, which is illustrated in detail. Ninety-one 'points of interest' around San Francisco are numerically identified and correspond to an index situated in the upper right corner. A street index that lists San Francisco's streets in alphabetical order, provides the grid location of all illustrated streets. Vignettes of fishermen, mermaids, ferries, and birds populate San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean that surround San Francisco.

This map was copyrighted by Geo. C. Thomas and published by Thomas Bros c. 1938.
