Details: This poster is of a vintage travel ad for California. It shows a ship sailing in clear blue waters, with the sun setting behind it. At the top it says 'California' and the sail of the boat says 'The Land of Promise'. At the bottom it says 'Published by the State Board of Trade, San Francisco, Cal.'
California is the most populous state in the United States and the third-largest by land area, after Alaska and Texas. It's on the U.S. West Coast, bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and by the states of Oregon to the north, Nevada to the east, Arizona to the southeast, Baja California, Mexico, to the south. Its 5 largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, and Long Beach, with Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Jose each having at least 1 million residents. Like most populated states, California's capital, Sacramento is smaller than the state's largest city, Los Angeles. The state is home to the nation's 2nd- and 6th-largest census statistical areas and 8 of the nation's 50 most populous cities. California has a varied climate and geography and a multi-cultural population.
