One More West Oakland Photo
Here’s another interesting thing I found in the same neighborhood. It’s a memorial to the people (62 in all) who died in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. It’s on the Mandela Parkway, which, as I understand it, takes the place of an elevated freeway that once existed here but collapsed that day.
Amazingly, that earthquake really did only last 15 seconds, as the wall behind the statue says.
