Published by prolific San Francisco-based lithography and printing company Britton & Rey, this stunning depiction of Sacramento County shows the city in a period of significant growth and transformation. Their productions contain numerous historical details and notable civic features. As railroads expanded throughout the West and local economies were spurred by an influx of eager immigrants, prospectors, and merchants establishing businesses in towns and cities throughout the region. The introduction of refrigeration opened markets for fruit, and fresh produce was grown abundantly throughout Sacramento County. This combination of economic forces allowed Sacramento to flourish as the nation hurtled towards the prosperity of the so-called Gilded Age. The First Transcontinental Railroad was anchored in Sacramento, and numerous banks were established within the city limits.
The diversity of the immigrants to Sacramento County shaped the culture in the late nineteenth century and has remained an essential part of the region's social patchwork. Neighborhoods were established along cultural lines, many of which exist to this day.
Britton & Rey published a prodigious amount of maps and architectural renderings of notable or historical buildings. The distinct style and unique aesthetic immediately transports the viewers back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. Britton would become a prominent civic leader in San Francisco and was a well-known philanthropist. As California's state Capital Sacramento became one of the icons of the American West. Britton & Rey's work is featured in the Library of Congress, and this is an authentic piece of American cartographical history.
