View of San Francisco, : Taken from the Western Hill at the foot of Telegraph Hill, looking toward Ringon Point and Mission Valley / drawn from nature by Henry Bainbridge and Geo. W. Casilear ; lith. of Sarony & Major

The city of San Francisco was incorporated in 1850, and later grew to become one of the most famous cities in the US. The California Gold Rush in 1848 saw the city's population increase from 1,000 to 25,000 over the course of a year. This beautiful map provides a look back to the early days of the city. Complete reference list below.

Bottom text reads:

The City is located about 7 miles from the entrance of the Harbor. The Harbor with it's imposing Grandeur and beauty, may safely be called one of the most magnificent in the World. At Present there are between 4 and 500 square rigged vessels at anchor in the Bay, many of which are hidden from view by the opposite hill on the left. In the extreme left will be seen the Island of Yerba Buena, and also in the same direction about 50 miles distant. Monte Diablo peering from behind the Hills of Contra Cosla.
