Temescal History

Oakland North is running a great set of pieces on the History of Temescal today, including sweet before and after pics of Temescal stores and intersections.

I like this dude and his goat.

Marcus Books

I got my copy of Maroon Societies here. Also my Collected Poems of Langston Hughes and a stuffed Langston Hughes doll, now sadly missing. Clearly, this place is a treasure.

The Oakland branch is at 3900 Martin Luther King Blvd – behind MacArthur BART. Like a lot of bookstores these days, they need your business.
