Biography   Charles Gifford

A lithographer and landscape artist, Charles Gifford was born in 1830 in Massachusetts.  Gifford appears to have moved to California about 1855 with his wife, Josepha of Nicaragua.  After settling in San Francisco, he worked with various lithographers such as the Nahi brothers and George Tyler Brown before becoming a partner of William V. Gray in a lithography firm.

He was the delineator of several bird's-eye views of San Francisco.  By 1870 he had moved south to San Jose where he is believed to have died about 1882.
