If you click on a picture, you can start a slide show if you click on the forward arrow, or advance one picture at a time through the gallery.
Many people are surprised to learn that Alameda had popular bathing beaches, because the water in the San Francisco Bay is generally pretty cold to swim in. A description of Alameda’s South Shore Beach from around 1920 described, “When the tide is low, the sun rays warm the sand, which raises the temperature of the water at high tide, making this a famous bathing place.”
Aslo from the menu at the top of any page, you can use the dropdown menus to navigate to other pages that have images of: Alameda Homes and Parks, Alameda Churches and Motels, Alameda Schools, the Alameda Naval Air Station, Restaurants and Bars, and more.
