Derelict ferry boat THE GARDEN CITY, Carquinez Strait near Eckley, San Francisco Bay. Its keel was laid in 1879. The South Pacific Coast Railway employed the Garden City on the "Creek Run", from San Francisco across the Bay to Oakland (at what's now Jack London Square) and Alameda. In 1983, the boat was burnt down to the waterline by a series of brush fires on the adjoining hillside. This is one of the few existing photos of the boat taken before the fire.
