We believe that preserving our environment and natural resources will create a brighter future for all. That’s why a portion of every sale goes directly to supporting organizations helping to protect our land, water and air from human impact.
As with the 1883 map, I find this fascinating. I'm a native Californian and a history buff, so this is right up my alley. This is from 26 years after statehood, when the bulk of the population lived in the northern half of the state.
We love old maps. Their coloration, typography, legends, notations, and sometimes even outdated place names all have a nostalgic quality that gives them a special beauty. If you share our love for vintage maps, you’ll appreciate this 1876 California State Map in our Historic Series.
The California State map was originally produced on two separate pages and has been digitally combined to make a single map. There is a noticeable difference between the top half and bottom half.
This map was made from official records of the General Land Office and other sources by C. Roeser, Principal Draughtsman G.L.O. Photolith. & Print by Julius Bien in 1876.
