The Sacramento Northern

The spot that now houses Homeroom, and once housed my dentist office, an abortion clinic, and other neighborhood medical offices, was once the train yard of the Sacramento Northern line. You can find other remnants of the line throughout Oakland. Here’s a photo of the train above Lake Temescal:

  1. I’m glad that you like the Sacramento Northern photo that I took 55 years ago this month. I would appreciate it however, if you would attribute me and the website address where this image is posted, as the entire site is posted under a Creative Commons license as explained on the website’s home page.

  2. Thanks for posting the attribute. I really appreciate that. I’m trying to make my site and its images available to anyone for their non-commercial use and I don’t believe in watermarking or otherwise trying to keep someone from doing something with an image that they like. That image was taken in a different world…long ago. I can’t believe that it will be 55 years ago on Feb 13th. It doesn’t seem that long ago, but maybe it does.

    Best regards and good luck with your site.
