Summary  Sailing ships, paddlewheelers, wagons and busy people congregate at the foot of J Street in 1849. This 1968 reproduction of Stringer and Townsend's widely circulated color print shows prominent businesses of the time as well as vessels and vehicles that sold and supplied the goods that helped develop Sacramento as a city in the making during its first year as California's 'new kid.' The artist was G. V. Cooper. "This is number 237 of an edition limited to 500 copies." Reproduced from the original in the Mariners Museum, Newport News, Virginia.
