Once Upon a Time 1863-1892 -- July 21, 2011

The San Francisco Arts Commission ( has set up a series of posters by artist Elisheva Biernoff representing important moments in San Francisco history and geographic features that lie beneath the developed city. I took this photo on 25-June-2011, showing a poster that depicts the Big Four, the robber barons who profited from the Central Pacific Railroad, and the Chinese laborers who built much of it. It also shows Woodward's Gardens, an early pleasure resort. Click on the image to see an enormously large version.
