The Bancroft Library
One of a series of prints by B.F. Butler showing building façades on various city blocks in San Francisco. More from this series can be found in the Robert B. Honeyman, Jr. collection of early Californian and Western American pictorial material (BANC PIC 1963.002). Duplicate in BANC MSS 85/43 c (folder 25B). Printed title (MC). Printed (MR): Lithos. B.F. Butler's San Francisco. Handwritten (below title): Appearance previous to the fire of 3d-4th May, 1851. The drawing is not well executed, for instance the houses are much higher compared to their width. The alley between our house and the brick store of Parrott is not drawn wide enough, but our sign is drawn too large. The iron grating in front of our store opens and gives access to the cellar, which is also provided with iron doors. The vault is in the rear. Additional handwritten comments about the buildings above image.
