Historical map of San Francisco Creeks

This great map from the 1890s shows creeks in blue and marshes in green, with modern landfill in magenta. A larger version is at the Oakland Museum of California site.

  1. This map is amazing! I was just talking about the various lakes and creeks that once ran under San Francisco with a friend today and meant to go online to “google” it. But I stumbled on your site when it was mentioned on CurbedSF.com and accidentally found the map here! I found the rest of the information on your site fantastic too! Consider me a fan now! 🙂
