This one is possibly looking east on Ashby Avenue in Berkeley. That’s the top of
Mt Diablo in the background. -- John Hall
I believe (90% sure) this photo is the excavation of the tidal canal that made
Alameda an island.
It was completed in September 1902, so the photo is probably 1901.
The end of the tail of the white arrow (below) is the approximate camera
location. -- John Hall
Great White Fleet
(Close-up of near ships)
The sailing ship is probably in the Oakland
Estuary on the Alameda shore. During the time period of the
photographs numerous sailing ships were moored here. They were
notorious for being stuck in the mud and difficult to float off when
needed. Here is a March 1911 image of the area (below). --
The three ship construction photos
look like they have the Oakland waterfront in the
background. This would mean the boat under construction
was in Alameda. John W. Dickie was building ferry boats
for the Key System in Alameda: the San Jose in 1903; the
San Francisco in 1905; the Fernwood in 1908; and the
Claremont in 1907. He also built the Cazadero and the
Lagunitas in 1903 for the North Shore Railroad. The
photo cannot be the Lagunitas but it might be any of the
others. -- John Hall
