Description

A view of the San Francisco Bay and the city of El Cerrito from the Berkeley hills. The gap in the horizon is the Golden Gate, before the bridge was built. Rising above the fog to the right is Marin County with Mount Tamalpais and to the left, San Francisco.

In the middle ground is Albany Hill and to the right is the city of Richmond, California. The houses in the foreground are located in the Kensington area of the Berkeley Hills, Alameda County, below Tilden Park.

This impression is dedicated to California printmaker Jean Abel (1906-1991).
