Overview

Explore the eastern side of San Francisco’s beautiful bay with this photographic look at the East Bay, as it was then and how it is today. From Fremont to Richmond, the East Bay is a vibrant, energetic region encompassing growing business and technological concerns, thriving student populations, and serene residential neighborhoods. That’s today’s image of the East Bay, but 160 years ago much of the region was still farmland. Everything changed with the discovery of gold at John Sutter’s sawmill in 1848. This book traces the ensuing explosion of business and population through fascinating archival photographs placed side by side with matching contemporary views. Historic sites pictured include the San Jose Mission, the San Leandro Courthouse, the Lake Merritt Boat House, and Berkeley City Hall.
