About this Item

This fine lithograph view of Shasta in California, measuring 24.25 x 31.5 framed, is from "Kuchel & Dresel's California Views" which included "all the important cities and mining towns, with a few of Oregon and Washington, issued during 1855, 1856, 1857, and 1858. They were sometimes published by a local merchant, often the bookseller [as here]. Many of them were framed by a border of views of important buildings, ranches, and mines in and about the town portrayed." (Peters page 142). Kuchel was born in Zweibrucken in 1820, and when he arrived in America work initially for P.S. Duval in Philadelphia. He began collaborating with Dresel in 1853. Kuchel and Dresel capture this bird's-eye view of Shasta, in Shasta County, California only a few years after it was created as one of the original counties of California in 1850. In 1852 parts of the county's territory were given to Siskiyou County, and later to Tehama County in 1856. Named after Mount Shasta which in turn is from the English equivalent for the name of an Indian tribe that once lived in the area. Peters, "California on Stone", pages 143 and 145; see Streeter 2787.
