"Historic Photo" of the Week

Old Antioch Photo From the Late 1860's

If I read the caption right, you are on your way to the Riverview Lodge in this picture. The 2nd building on the left would later become home to the famous Marchetti's Restaurant. I would love to see what other photos Charles Bohakel has in his possession. I believe he taught California history at Los Medanos College for a time. Sorry this photo isn't available in HD.

Can You Guess The Name Of This Island?

My brother Neil (photo credit) flew last week with brother Greg MacCallister and took this picture of... drum roll, Alcatraz. Pat yourself on the back if you guessed correctly. I've never seen this prison, now a park, quite like this before. I have been in one of the jail cells though, as a visitor on a tour, not as an inmate, thank goodness. This is a very sharp and clear picture. See it in 1500 HD. Makes me think of the Nicholas Cage movie "The Rock."
