While following yesterday's "trail," I came upon this tiny house. It can't be more than 10 feet wide and maybe 15 feet high. it looks like it is single wall construction and probably has been here since 1905-1910. More contemporary houses muscle up to each side of this house. Oakland used to be a summer rural retreat for San Franciscans due to it's better weather and plentiful redwood and oak forests. It doesn't take much imagination to believe that this little structure was a getaway cabin back at the turn of the previous century. Nestled in a little valley, it would have faced the quiet waters of Glen Echo Creek. Somehow it persisted even as the street changed. Whoever lives here now values a simple life on a peaceful street, away from the urban roar.
