The notation on the back reads "Soon to be completed Grove Shafter freeway-Oakland" This is a view lookind south on the freeway as it curves over Grove street at center. [The portion of the freeway that will connect with the Nimitz freeway, at top, is still occupied by scattered houses and other buildings, so that the completion is a fair amount of time away, given that ground-breaking has not been started, and notwithstanding the notation on the back JM 10/30/2000] The Nimitz freeway, the estuary, the city of Alameda, and an aircraft carrier are all in the background.
