Late 19th century or circa 1900 early print of the pre-bridge Golden Gate, looking east into the sunrise, Marin County's headlands on the left, the historic Fort Point on the right, a combination steam and sail vessel leaving the bay. The print shows a much-loved and famous part of America's geography, years before the equally loved Golden Gate Bridge was erected to span this gap. I do not know the identity of the artist who created this. Having opened the backing I do not learn any more as the inner backing is securely taped up and I do not wish to disturb it. There is a shaped mat; whether to accommodate losses or imperfections I do not know, but it works as it is. The print is clean and ready to hang on the wall of the student or early California or marine art collector, though I'd recommend replacing the detail-dulling non glare type glass.
