Grove Street School, the Ghirardelli house, Oakland Gas Light & Heat Co., Hall of Records, Bay City Iron Works, Oenophile Store, Central Free Kindergarten, Bret Harte Boardwalk, Muller Brothers Pickle Factory, Grove Street Pier, marshland Chinatown, Thunderbird Lodge, Landmark Number One . . . where are they now? Lurking between the freeways, container terminals, condo towers, Jack London Square, and the mainline tracks are surprising fragments of oldest Oakland, the southwest corner of the Original Town. A long, level walk.
