Linen-backed. The image measures 22 1/8" x 33 7/8". The overall piece, with linen border, measures 26" x 38". The map is central, surrounded by border advertisements of local establishments, most of which are now gone. The map was drawn by H. P. Davis, the author of "Gold Rush Days in Nevada City". In addition to a scale map of city streets, Davis has added small drawings and text regarding significant historical facts. Nevada City is the County Seat of Nevada County, California, in the gold country of the Sierra foothills. Running through the center of town is Deer Creek, the site of the earliest gold finds. The city was formally founded in March 1850, and named "Nevada", but had to add the word "City" when Nevada became a State. The richest deep quartz-gold mines in California are found in this area, principally in adjoining Grass Valley. Minor restoration and linen-backing by dba Innis Archives. Near Fine overall.
