The Tribune photo, dated February 3, 1959, has the following caption on the back: "LOOKING TO THE FUTURE--This is an aerial view of the Metropolitan Oakland International Airport showing the fill for the new terminal building, runways, and taxiways, which extend for a mile into the waters of the Bay." In addition, the sweep of the photo shows Alameda, the Estuary, Oakland, Berkeley, and Albany to the north.
