About the Author

Author Tricia O’Brien, whose own family has deep Bayview Hunters Point roots, tells the area’s story through more than 200 vintage photographs culled almost exclusively from the collections of local families and history-minded organizations. She shows readers the dramatic transformation that has occurred since the early days; the naval shipyard that once dominated the area is being redeveloped and the new Third Street light rail extension is bringing further change to the Bayview. Today, the neighborhood has its challenges, but this stirring collection is proof that the Bayview’s history is an illustrious one and its spirit is strong.
