Once Upon a Time 1821-1848 -- May 18, 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 today of a poster that depicts the rancho of Juana Briones and the first Gold Rush ships abandoned in Yerba Buena cove. The small map shows the locations of five buried ships, provided by eminent historian Ron Filion. Click on the image to see an enormously large version.
