Levee View of Sacramento City as it Appeared During the Great Inundation in January 1850./ Drawn from Nature by Geo. W. Casilear & Henry Bainbridge./ Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1850 by Casilear & Bainbridge in the Clerks Office of the District Court of the Southern District of New York./ Lith. of Sarony, New York. The text on the map includes: "The city is situated on a Plain on the east Bank of the Sacramento River about 143 miles from San Francisco. The rise of the River during the flood occasioned by heavy rains and the melting of Snow from the mountains was about 20 feet. The small Island covered with tents at the head of J. St. on the left is called by the Indians, Sa'cum a Knoll of ground bade by the Indians and the only dry spot visible for miles during the flood. In the distance at the head of J. St. will be seen Sutters Fort about 2 miles from the levee. In the extreme distance will be seen the Sierra Nevada Mountains or the Gold Region whose tops are mostly covered with Snow the year round and present a most striking and beautiful appearance when view from the City. The City Hotel, the large frame building facing on the Levee or River on the left of J. St. was built, during the summer 1849 at a Cost of $78,000. The Sutler Hotel the large frame building facing the Levee on the extreme right was built during the fall of 1849, cost $50,000. We cheerfully concur in recommending the above Picture as being a true and accurate Drawing of the City of Sacramento, as it appeared during the flood of January 1850." Signatures along the bottom right include: Capt. John A. Sutter; J.L. Thomas, Alcalde of Sacramento City; E. Gibs, editor of Placer Times; and Albert J. Priest, Priest, Lee & Co. The city of Sacramento was founded in 1848, and quickly grew due to the California Gold Rush. Incorporated as a city in 1850, it became the state's capital in 1854. Reproduced for a Sacramento American Bicentennial Edition limited to 1500 copies. Sponsored by Argus Books, Sacramento, California. This is number 1011/1500.
