Latham Square

Latham Square where Telegraph Avenue meets Broadway.  A winter shot was previously posted.  The Pony Express actually came this way and caught a ferry to San Francisco to deliver its mail.  Strangely enough there is no plaque to commemorate this slice of Western history.

  2. I have been on various portions of the Pony Express trail, but in Oakland? I had no idea. You really should get a job with the city for you always show the "other side" of Oakland many do not know. Everyone only hears what the media tells us, the dark and ugly side of Oakland.
