Bottom edge of image has "(c) Jerry Takigawa 1970." Bottom center of poster has "White Community Involvement Center/ Street Level Eshleman 642-6392 Univeristy of California Berkeley."This critique turns the common phrase "Dead in their tracks" to compare the sterility and isolation of suburban housing tracts to the features of a graveyard. [LMC]

Poster has a large black border around a white and black photograph in the center. The photo depicts rows and rows of small tract housing in a suburban area. Below the housing are rows of white tombstoness. Dividing the two images is "Dead in their tracts."
