Oakland Online

The Oakland Public Library has put a collection of historical Oakland photos up on the Internet. This is a very cool site. The photo of the Bay and Golden Gate taken from Skyline Boulevard in 1923 is remarkable. Being that I spend a good period of my formative years in Oakland, I feel very close to the city, and these photos show what the city and the surrounding areas looked like over a hundred years ago.
