Santa Venetia, 1914
Owning Institution: Marin County Free Library
About this CollectionImages of Santa Venetia (San Rafael) from two promotional brochures published by Mabry McMahan to promote his failed Santa Venetia development plan. Both were produced in late 1914, around the time of McMahan’s “Grand Opening” celebration. McMahan was responsible for filling in Santa Venetia marshland and creating a series of canals, the canvas on which he hoped to create a luxury subdivision modeled after the Italian city of Venice.
