A Lighthouse of California

CA 22 Oakland Harbor
latitude 37° 46' 53.5" N
longitude 122° 14' 35.7" W

July 29, 2007

The arrival of the Central Pacific railroad terminus at Oakland in 1869 heightened the need for a nearby link to shipping in San Francisco Bay. Consequently, two piers that were spaced 750 feet and extended two miles out into the bay were built, and the area around them was dredged to form a shipping terminal.

This light is now the home of Quinn's restaurant. It's well away from anyplace, so we took a taxi from the ferry dock.
