Long Description:
This map in on the "shellmound" plaza over the Gurgle water feature at the entrance to Ryder Park. It's not useful for navigating; it's not intended to be. The map reproduces work done by Jerome Hamilton, 1896-1936, on the Indian shellmounds and the creeks and marshes of San Mateo's bay shoreline.
