The MacArthur freeway runs vertically in this photo while the Grove Sahfter runs horizontally. The interchange is at center. Both freeways have automobiles on them. Mosswood Park and the MacArthur-Broadway shopping center are in the right lower quadrant. Broadway runs parallel to the bottom of the photo. The interchange between the Macarthur and Interstate 80 is at the top. The BART station is at right center, between the east- and west-bound roadways of the Grove-Shafter freeways. (4/2002, G. Weininger, from DeWitt Jones, Oakland Parks and Playgrounds, 1935): The Mosswood Park estate was purchased by Oakland for $72,000 in 1912 as the result of efforts of Mayor Frank Mott. The park is now the site of the Vagabond Theatre, a large truck with a well-equipped stage, which moves around among California towns.
