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 would recommend replacing the detail-dulling non glare type glass.
