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 completed and notwithstanding the notation on the back JM 10/30/2000] The estuary, the Nimitz freeway, and the edge of the city of Alameda are in the background. This is virtually the same view as in 2000.1.1229
