San Antonio Creek California.
English: This is a rare 1857 U.S. Coast Survey chart of San Antonio Creek and Oakland, California. Oakland is an important Bay area city located directly east of San Francisco, just across the bay. Also shows Brooklyn, CA, and the road to San Jose, CA. Offers excellent inland detail, to the level of individual buildings, especially in the city of Oakland. Depth soundings throughout. The triangulation for this chart was accomplished by R. D. Cutts. The topography is the work A. F. Rodgers. The Hydrography was completed by a party under the command of James Alden. The entire work was produced in 1857 under the direction of A. D. Bache, superintendent of the United States Coast Survey.

(Reusing this file)
This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
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.
