The Tribune clipping, dated April 21, 1968, attached to the back of the photo reads " Tracks veer from Grove-Shafter to Grove Street; two girders are in place for line to Orinda." The camera is aimed southward, looking over the path of the freeway. In the foreground there are two bridge segments over 52nd Street running (mostly) horizontally across the photo near the bottom. The junction of Shattuck and Telegraph avenues is at upper left. The Bay Area Rapid Transit elevated track structures come in at right center to the point where Grove Street makes a slight turn to the right. Childrens Hospital is at right center.
