From caption on back of photograph: "In the pre-war (above), Oakland airport was the dominant commercial airport in the Bay Area. Now, as it welcomes TWA back into the fold (above), more and more passengers (right) file through its airy, modern terminal as it experiences renewed importance." Photograph looking down on the old Oakland Airport. Two lines of biplanes are parked along the "tarmac," which does not appear to be paved. There are two small administration/terminal buildings and four larger hangars. The proper leftmost of the hangars has "OAKLAND" written on its roof. Someone has drawn in the outline of another hangar on the empty grassland at the far proper right and labeled it "A.", while the building under construction at the far proper left has been labeled "B."
