Historic Map - San Diego, CA - 1876

Birds eye view of San Diego, California 1876. Drawn by E.S. Glover. A.L. Bancroft & Co., lithographers

The city of San Diego was founded in 1769 on the Pacific coast, and was incorporated into a city in 1850. However, in the late 1860's the city moved a few miles south to "New Town", which would later become downtown San Diego. This map was produced approximately 10 years after the move to San Diego Bay. In the years since, it has grown to become the second most populous city in California. Complete reference list below.
