SP 1806, Likely in Roseville
This photo is from the Ken Rattenne collection. It's likely that I gave him the slide years ago and mislabled it as being in Oakland. I believe this is Roseville, on Tuesday, August 6, 1974, over by the tower near the 211 Shanty. If so, my bad! Ken scanned the slide and posted it with my permission. Thanks Ken!
