San Francisco

Colonial Press


[16] pp. incl. self-wrappers. Printed in red. Illustrations from photographs & sketch maps. 31x23.5 cm. (12¼x9¼"). Rare auction catalog for houses, buildings, and land in San Francisco, as the City had been largely rebuilt following the devastation of the earthquake and fire of 1906. The property ranges from "A Fine Location for Small Apartment House in Very Choice District" (Sutter Street between Leavenworth and Hyde) to the Princess Theatre, "well known to all San Franciscans and housed the most important amusements for the two years following the fire," on Ellis between Fillmore and Steiner. Also for sale is the Beresford Hotel; Valencia Theatre; "Two nice flats just south of Park Panhandle - Ashbury Heights"; and more. Some 51 properties were offered. A very significant feature of this copy of the catalog is the selling prices that have been penciled in next to many of the lots, which were fairly strong. As a legend on the rear wrapper reads: "San Francisco Grows and Grows in Spite of it All." OCLC/WorldCat lists only the copy at the University of California, Berkeley.
