This map is taken from a Chevron "East Bay
Cities" Street and Vicinity Maps copyright 1960. The map has a lot of really
interesting things to notice including:
Bay Farm Island still looks a lot like an island.
Notice it has only about fifteen street names in 1960. This was before the
massive Bay Farm Island land fill and farm to housing conversion that
created much of what is Bay Farm today.
At the other end of Alameda, Ballena Bay has not
been created yet.
The Webster Street Tube is still a "proposed tube"
(the Posey Tube still ran in both directions in 1960).
Government Island has the Coast Guard, but also a
large U.S. Forest Service presence.
