    They had topographic maps, as well as charts.  I know I spent
    money there; but it's all a bit hazy now.  Might even have been a
    bit hazy then, come to think of it . . . .
    
    If I recall correctly, there used to be a big hole in the ground
    nearby, work on a large new building foundation was being held up
    because of the ships that had been moored, sunk, and buried
    during the 1849 Gold Rush.  Archaeologists were having a field
    day.
