Beautifully Framed Vintage Maps and Art of Oakland

Our custom framed vintage maps of Oakland are unique. We have three exquisite giclee reproductions of the following three maps. First, we have a bird’s eye view artist’s rendering of Downtown Oakland during the 1880’s. Lake Merritt is certainly different in shape in those days than it is now. The print is in a sepia tone with a double matting picking up on the warm taupe tone of the rendering. A warm toned silver picture frame moulding enhances the finish product. The rendering is available both framed and unframed. Secondly, we have a larger map of the combined cities of Oakland, Berkeley and Alameda, circa 1904. This map shows very little development east of the current highway 580. That area was just tracts of open land. The matting compliments the blue green tones of the map. The burnished and ribbed silver picture frame has a very turn of the century antique look to it. Thirdly, we have a great tract map of the city of Piedmont, turn of the century. This was before the 1906 San Francisco earthquake so little development was done in eastern Piedmont. Some very familiar names owned large tracts of land which is now upper Piedmont. The framing of this piece is a simple but antique styled frame.
