then-and-now map : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

Looking for a good overlay map showing the natural shoreline of the City and the present street alignments, especially along the Marina-North Point area.

Does this help?

Thanks, but I was looking for actual conditions. This map shows projected street layouts as of 1863, not what really exists today.

Ok just hurt my feelings after I went through all this trouble...

check out Lawson et. al. 1908 report on 1906 quake. SF History Room in the main library has a copy. Also the David Rumsey Map Collection: This site has a great collection of maps including some very interesting charts of SF and the bay. You'll need to download a special browser and the maps are huge if you want good detail, but you should find the collection helpful.
