On August 1, 1889, Orange County broke away from Los Angeles County. This map, one of the first to document the new county, was compiled by S. H. (Soloman Henderson) Finley in 1889, published by H.S. Crocker & Company in San Francisco, and colored by E.M. Sleator. The map is from the Collection of Orange County and California maps, MS-R103, a collection of over 100 maps that documents the State of California, but especially its southern counties. Although the maps are predominantly reproductions they also include a number of originals (such as this one), with some dating back to the 1820s. Throughout 2014, Orange County will celebrate its 125th anniversary, also known as the Quasquicentennial. Happy Quasquicentennial!!
