  • More About This Book
We have aimed to furnish in convenient form for distribution a selection of some of the most important features of Oakland and its surroundings, as represented in its scenery as well as public and private buildings, which of themselves are monuments to the taste and prosperity of our citizens. To these have been added descriptive articles selected from a variety of sources. Our object has not been to tell a glowing story, but simply to give facts in an interesting manner; to furnish residents with such a description of Oakland and surroundings as they can conscientiously send to friends; to put something in the hands of tourists, and especially to afford reliable and satisfactory information to those who are longing to make a home where they can find health and comfort amid sunshine, fruit, and flowers. The lithograph illustrations are all made from nature, not from photographs. The views cover a great variety of subjects and are of all grades and qualities of workmanship, and all were executed by the publisher at his lithographing establishment in Oakland. The views represent different kinds of artistic work: soft, fine lithograph, crayon etchings, zincographs, wood-cuts, photo-engraving, heliotype, and other processes.
