San Francisco Chevalier Map 1915

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 Their coloration, typography, legends, notations, and sometimes even outdated place names all have a nostalgic quality that gives them a special beauty.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 1915 San Francisco Chevalier Map in our Historic Series. In remastering maps for this series, we go to great pains to clean them up, eliminating stains, stamps, handwriting, and other signs of map aging. We then rework them into easily framable sizes and bring out the richness of their colors and details. Because we print them on fine archival paper and canvas, all their original beauty shines through. Browse our extensive collection of parks, cities, states, and more. It’s like traveling in a cartographic time machine.

    • Made in the USA

      We consider our maps to be works of art, so we print and frame them accordingly. We offer two choices of print surfaces: fine-art archival paper and stretched canvas.

      Every map is custom printed. We have no inventory. Only when we receive your order do we produce your print on our 12-color giclée printer, using top-quality archival inks that will never fade.

      Fine Art Paper-Our archival paper is museum-quality, 100% cotton, acid-free, and certified to last 100 years. This assures sharp details, true colors, and exceptional durability.

      Canvas Gallery Wrap-If you prefer a frameless look, order your map on stretched canvas, which offers a bit more depth and texture. We use archival canvas, gallery-wrapped and varnished, stretched onto a 1.5-inch-thick wood frame.

      Reclaimed-Wood Frame-Handmade in Michigan utilizing wood salvaged from a historic mill in Detroit, that is oiled to bring out the natural beauty of the wood. The frames have a 1.75" face and 0.75" rough-cut sides.

      Black Frame-For a cleaner aesthetic, we offer a simple matte black wood frame with a 1.25" face and 1" sides.

    SF map

    The map was exactly as pictured. The quality of the paper was thick, and it was easy to frame the print in a frame bought from a local store as the size of the 24x30 map fits exactly into commonly available frames. As shown in the online image, there are marks from the fold in the map from the original, but that just lends to its character. Overall, a great print.

    The map is beautiful, nice quality thick paper, rich old fashioned colors..

    Happy with the item but the shipping was delayed over a week. Not sure why but probably a problem with UPS, and not MuirWay.

    Nice quality print on fine paper

    I bought this as a gift for my wife. The heavy paper and crisp print are much nicer than all of our previous maps. I'll order more prints from here as I fill out our decor.

    Great looking map

    This is a nice looking print of a notable early 20th century map of San Francisco by August Chevalier. The sharp topography details are fun to scrutinize, and it has a character that I've found lacking in most maps of the city. It's cool to find such a nice presentation of this work.
