Title
City of San Francisco and its Vicinity California.
Description
English: A rare coastal chart of San Francisco by the U. S. Coast Survey, 1853. Depicts the immediate city of San Francisco and surrounding areas as far as the Mission de Dolores or the Mission de San Francisco. Issued shortly following the gold rush, this early map depicts the city extending only about 8 city blocks from the waterfront. Labels piers, wharfs, parks and roads as well as indicating important individual buildings such as the City Hall, the Post Office, hospitals, and churches. The ocean areas have detailed depth soundings. Text on public buildings, reservoirs, sailing notes, shoals, and tidal notations are included on the top left and lower right hand corners of the map. This map is the second state of the 1853 edition. The first edition, in 1862 lacked depth soundings. Varies from the first 1853 state in the additional of tidal information in the upper left and corrections in the naming of the wharves and piers. Rumsey suggests that the actual city plan was taken from an earlier map produced Cook and Le Count. The interior topography comes from the Eddy map. Varies from the first state in the additional of tidal information in the upper right and corrections in the naming of the wharves and piers. The original trigonometrical survey for this map was prepared by R. D. Cutts. The topography was accomplished by A. F. Rodgers and the hydrography by James Alden. All work was produced under the supervision of A. D. Bache, one of the most influential superintendents in the history of the U.S. Coast Survey.

Public domain

This work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 70 years or less.


Dialog-warning.svg You must also include a United States public domain tag to indicate why this work is in the public domain in the United States. Note that a few countries have copyright terms longer than 70 years: Mexico has 100 years, Jamaica has 95 years, Colombia has 80 years, and Guatemala and Samoa have 75 years. This image may not be in the public domain in these countries, which moreover do not implement the rule of the shorter term. Côte d'Ivoire has a general copyright term of 99 years and Honduras has 75 years, but they do implement the rule of the shorter term. Copyright may extend on works created by French who died for France in World War II (more information), Russians who served in the Eastern Front of World War II (known as the Great Patriotic War in Russia) and posthumously rehabilitated victims of Soviet repressions (more information).

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain".
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain in the United States. In other jurisdictions, re-use of this content may be restricted; see Reuse of PD-Art photographs for details.
