I’m sure you’ve all seen the Judgemental Maps of San Francisco by now.

It’s OK, though not particularly original and a little trite. TK made a ur-version that covers most of it:

(Hey TK, how about Pitchfork-style reviews of maps of San Francisco?)

Anyway, here’s my attempt, but it’s based of the 1861 Langley map of San Francisco (click to zoom).

Thanks to @mizmay, @DnomadB and @bradvertising for helping judge the 1860s.

At some point other that now, I will go through and link to all these references.

Please phrase all comments as if you were posting from the 1860s.
