New Map of the City of San Diego California
Date of Creation:
Fine lithographed map of San Diego from Pacific Beach in the North to Coronado in the south, with an inset of La Jolla and Index lower left, folding into self-wrappers titled “A New Map of San Diego”.
The earliest map of San Diego printed by Rodney Stokes, San Diego's first major mapmaking establishment.
A large scale map showing the subdivisions of San Diego, distributed by the Richards Realty Company, of 922 Sixth Street, in San Diego. Of note are the new subdivisions in Pacific Beach, Morena, Ocean Beach and La Playa. The map shows Fort Rosecrans, the US Naval Air Station, the Naval Fuel Depot, US Marine Corps Base and US Naval Training Station. Mission Beach remained intact until 1915, and there is no bridge across the Mission Bay Channel, connecting Ocean Beach and Pacific Beach.
Jacobs & Rock advertised their services as Map Mounters and Publishers in Los Angeles in 1908.
