Images of Oakland's Jingletown, San Antonio, Fruitvale, and Downtown Districts, Oakland Estuary, West Oakland, Alameda, and further afield...
Mor-Drop, Oakland
The Mor-Drop workshop, 29th and Chapman, Jingletown, a place that's still an active business. A few years ago someone tried to repaint the wall and damn nearly painted over the sign, which would have removed a treasured icon of Jingletown from before it became the "Jingletown Arts District" (and from when the entire Bay Area north of San Jose shared a single area code…); luckily the essential bits of the sign are still there now (2008), albeit a little obscured (image from sometime around 2001 or 2002).
