There are scads of mural panels on what would otherwise be a monolithic wall for a large power station in the Temescal neighborhood. This panel shows certain highlights in Oakland's history beginning with the Ohlone Indians who inhabited settlements around the SF Bay before the coming of Europeans. The train represents Oakland as the terminus of the transcontinental railroad. The Palazzo Vecchio tower is our local newspaper's headquarters built in 1923. I'm not so sure about the guy with the horse unless it's a nod to our agricultural past.
