Summary
Three sketched Sacramento scenes from FRANK LESLIE'S ILLUSTRATED NEWSPAPER from May 4, 1878, depict views encountered by the traveling correspondents. The top image is a street scene downtown, possibly 12th and I Streets, while the middle picture shows Front and K Streets in what is now Old Sacramento. The bottom view is the busy Sacramento River waterfront and the first railroad bridge. The following undated letter from R. Barton, Bridge Dept. of the California Division of Highways sheds some light on the picture. "This is believed to be an illustration of the second bridge across the Sacramento River and the first railroad bridge, completed 1870, built by California Pacific. Tracks of Central Pacific on right.
