This rare Adolph Sutro Broadside is printed on light Cloth in deep vivid bold black ink, measuring a large 21" x 17.75" c. 1897. This Broadside was issued to make everyone aware that the owner of "San Miguel Ranch" is not responsible for any work done on a road that will be built through his property. It is signed at the bottom, in the printed text, by the owner, Adolph Sutro. Some light creases and the right side has a slight stain which is trivial considering how extremely rarity of this Broadside, specially being printed on cloth. Fine condition. Rancho San Miguel was a 4,443-acre Mexican land grant in present-day San Francisco County, California given in 1845 by Governor Po Pico to Jos de Jess No. That Land Grant included what is now known as Eureka Valley and extended past Mount Davidson almost to present-day Daly City. The Grant encompassed the present-day San Francisco neighborhoods of Noe Valley, the Castro, Glen Park, Diamond Heights, and St. Francis Wood. With the cession of California to the United States following the Mexican-American War, the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo provided that the land grants would be honored. As required by the Land Act of 1851, a claim for Rancho San Miguel was filed with the Public Land Commission in 1852, and the grant was patented to Jos de Jess No in 1857. After his wife died in 1848, leaving three sons, No began selling Rancho San Miguel. In 1854, No sold a large part of Rancho San Miguel to John Meirs Horner and his brother William J. Horner. By that time No obtained a US Land Patent to Rancho San Miguel in 1857, he had already sold much of it. Jos No died in 1862 and passed what remained of the rancho to his children. By 1862, French financier, Franois Louis Alfred Pioche, owned most of the Rancho San Miguel, but then lost it in a foreclosure sale in 1878. In 1880, former Mayor of San Francisco Adolph Sutro bought the northwesterly portion of the rancho. In 1895, heirs of Jos No contended that his sale to Horner was illegal and unsuccessfully sued to have half of the rancho land -- their mother's share -- restored to them. This historic San Francisco, California related Broadside was issued by Adolph Sutro the owner of "San Miguel Ranch" warning all that he is not responsible for any work done on a road that will be built through his property.
