my home

found this postcard on ebay this morning, it’s where I live! El Cerrito is just in the foreground, with Albany, Berkeley and then Oakland stretching off into the distance.

Don’t know why this tickles me. I also grew up near here, in a house that would have been left middle ground on the Albany/Berkeley border. This postcard looks like 60’s-70’s… definately before they built the Gateview condos on the bayside of Albany Hill there. I’ll be able to tell more when I have it in my li’l hands.
