The photograph looks down from San Bruno Mountain north to San Francisco. Crocker Park, the Ice House, the Southern Pacific railyards and part of Daly City are also visible. Caption by Dolores Gomez: "1963. Crocker Industrial Park was beginning to take shape. Tiny trees are lining Valley Drive (which runs through the industrial park). There was a small grocery store across from the Elementary School (500 San Bruno Ave) yard. You could buy lunch and spend pennies on candy after school. Mozzetti's Trailer & Auto Court was whitewashed and neat. The school district was in the process of condemning homes and lots (including one owned by Dolores and Johnny Gomez) that encircled the school. Large scattering of apartments soon would dot the upper slopes of hillsides. Southern Pacific yards soon to be abandoned, were teeming with trains. Residents were ready (or not) for the opportunity to govern themselves. INCORPORATION!"
