Currier and Ives : “Perspective Map of the City of San Francisco” (1878)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

Published in 1878, this perspective map of San Francisco looks southwest from the bay. It is not drawn completely to scale, but emphasizes points of interest, which are indicated above the map title on the bottom margin. During the 19th century, pictorial maps such these were a popular way for American towns and cities to attract business and immigration.
