Redwood Bridge over Richardson Bay
Posted May 6, 2017, by Ken Herrick (kchdlh [at] sonic [dot] net)

My house, in the Oakland hills and to be for sale next year, incorporates timbers salvaged from the old Richardson Bay redwood bridge. It was built in 1961 (Benjamin Fishstein, architect) In many of the beams and posts the original bolt-holes remain visible. I attach a recent photo.
