1887 photo of a sailing ship by Point Loma. The old lighthouse is in view. The photo was taken by Herve Friend for Douglas Gunn's book 'Picturesque San Diego', published in 1887. Gunn was the 5th Mayor of San Diego, 1889 - 1891. He bought the San Diego Union in 1871 and published annual reviews of the progress of the City and County in pamphlet form. For 1887's review, he was urged to document the developments in illustrated form. He contracted with the American Photogravure Company and he and Mr. Friend captured photos for the book.
