murals at the Broadway Pet Hospital --- #1 of 3
Broadway and 51st Street, Oakland, California

There are two murals on display at this veterinary hospital. This is the one on the Broadway side of the building, near the front door.

I took this photo on a Sunday, when the clinic was closed.

As I understand it, this shows an imagined view of the Oakland hills as of 100 years ago. The road crossing the bridge is Broadway, the dirt road coming up from the left is Lawton Avenue, and the tall white ornamental entrance is still there at Broadway and Rockridge Place. Up in the far left corner is the Claremont Resort, and the hills themselves were always open and grassy until people moved in and planted the tall eucalyptus trees.
