Summary  This joint effort by the Board of Supervisors and Exposition Commissioners of Sacramento County from 1915 is a wonderful example of the promotional brochures issued by most California counties to draw visitors and new neighbors to the Golden State. Rooftop view of Sacarmento ca. 1915 when a building with more than three floors apparently qualified as a skyscraper. Today's downtown towers over even the imposing Capital building on the right and the cathedral on the left and pedestrians now dodge fast-moving autos rather than horse-drawn wagons and buggies.
