Description Love mzd Grief IN CALIFORNIA In California we were comfortably located with a home within easy distance of San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley. The two younger children attended a high school in East Oak- land, and Ruth went to college at Berkeley. We were left to our own companionship like the first lovers we were, thirty years ago. A trip to the city [San Francisco) was one of our delightful recreations. I live it over as I write. After the children were off to school we would get our city clothes on, give the chickens a good feed ing for the day, lock up, and walk four blocks to the Southern Pacific cars. We might be a few minutes ahead of time or it might be a good little run to catch it. We had our favorite seats in the car, that we might best note the season's advancement, the flowering trees, shrubs and front yard gar- dens. Then the embarkment at the mole," and our usual seats on the ferry, outside if the weather permitted. The twenty minute's ride always held points of interest for us. Then to set our watches as we came in sight of the ferry clock.3 The walk up Market Street to enjoy the window displays until we came to our bank where our checks could be cashed, was always a delight." After the bank errand we would always take lunch at one of the Leighton cafeterias, which was such a treat as a change for the Little Mother from her own cooking. 2 By 1885 the Southern Pacific Railroad had its western terminus on the Oakland mole, a massive masonry construction laid into east bay waters, and it was operating numerous ferries across San Francisco Bay. 3 The San Francisco Ferry Building was constructed by the State of Cali- fornia in 1896. Although the Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge were not constructed as yet (completed in 1936 and 1937 respectively), there were such natural points of interest as the Golden Gate itself - the ancient river outlet to the sea from the drowned valley that is the bay; Alcatraz Island, not as yet the location of the federal prison ( 19344963) ; Old Fort McDowell on Angel Island; and Goat Island, without the adjacent, man-made (1939) Treasure Island. 4 The 1847 Jasper O'Farrell survey laid out a grid diagonally to the original city plan, and these two systems interlocked at Market Street, the principal thoroughfare of the city. 83
