"This 1901 view, looking north from Alameda, takes in the Oakland waterfront west of the Webster Street Bridge.  The estuary is lined with storage yards for lumber, coal, and building materials.  Oakland's city-owned wharves adjoin the bridge, and on the far left a ferryboat is docked at the foot of Broadway." Pacific Gateway, Woodruff Minor, p. 15
