Pacific, formerly Franklin, Franklin Co., Missouri 1869. Drawn by A. Ruger.

Reproduction map of the community known as Pacific (formerly Franklin), MO, drawn by Prussian born Albert Ruger. Pacific is the town formerly called Franklin, that is situated where the Meramec River meets the St. Peter Sandstone. The Pacific Palisades conservation area is home to the giant rock and sand formations along this portion of the Meramec. The St. Peter Sandstone is an Ordovician formation in the Chazyan stage of the Champlainian series. The sandstone, also called Ottawa Sand, originated as a sheet of sand in shallow water near the shore of a Paleozoic sea. It consists of fine, round grains of frosted quartz. The sheet of sand extends from Missouri, all the way to Minnesota. The mines outside Pacific harvest this important granule for its use in the manufacture of glass, for filter and molding sand, and for abrasives. It is also important as a "frac sand" in oil and gas drilling. The sand is pumped into rock fractures as a liquid to hold open the cracks, enhancing the extraction of hydrocarbons.

The map features clearly labeled street names with lively scenes of carriage, pedestrian and railroad traffic.
