Lewis M. Clement's San Francisco Tidelands Map

From: "Larry Mullaly"

I just came across a San Francisco Bay Tidelands map in the David Rumsey Collection. It is has some interesting features including the sweep of Tidelands making up the Oakland Waterfront and also the extent of shoal lands set aside for a terminus at Goat (Yerba Buena) Island for the Central Pacific Terminal Railroad Company (originally not connected with Stanford/Huntington CP, but subsequently acquired by them). Most pertinent to our discussion topics is the penned notation on the far right bottom corner indicating that it was originally property of "Lewis M. Clement, San Francisco."
