moreThis print is a map of San Francisco's downtown Chinatown from 1885. It shows many of the streets we are familiar with today - Dupont, Stockton, Sacramento and Pacific streets to name a few. However, it also has a really unique and subtle quality that almost goes missed if you don't look closely. This map depicts the locations of the Chinese gambling houses, opium dens, and prostitution houses in that neighborhood in 1885.
From a historical perspective this brings up so many questions like: was it normal to publicize the locations of these types of establishments then? Was this activity really going on or was this map created to further isolate a community and create fear among other San Franciscans? It's one of the more amazing historical maps I've ever come across, so if Chairish allows this to be posted (despite it's nefarious nature) I think you'll agree it is a really awesome find.
This print was made for an art consulting project for a San Francisco hotel. We ended up not going with a much larger print so this is a duplicate. The print is on high quality textured paper and sold unframed. less
