Found Object

While restoring a wall in a house, one of our residents found this interesting sketch. It’s from 1978 and seems to be signed by the city planner at the time. It shows some of the public transit lines and bridges that we have now—including the dirigible aerodrome—and seems to anticipate the moving out of all buildings in the flood plain after the ’89 Loma Prieta Earthquake.

The city planner died in 2003, and so we can’t ask about this sketch, but please enjoy the work of this early visionary.
