Nearly 500 separate historic sites across the state of California are numbered within this map’s image. According to the legend in the lower right, four symbols identify the approximate period of each location; Spanish-Mexican, Gold Rush, Agricultural Era, and the Commercial and Industrial Expansion. Vibrant illustrations provide an stylized depiction of each. The image also includes inset maps of major urban centers throughout the state, including the California Mother Lode, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Monterrey.

Cartography by Lowell Butler, artwork by Gordon Brusstar, and published in 1952 in Vol. 44, No. 12 of Westways by the Automobile Club of Southern California.
