Emeryville mud flat sculptures revisited | The Big Event

Published On May 12, 2012 | By Rob Arias | History & Archive, News & Commentary

One of the most highly trafficked posts in this blog is actually a repost of an Emeryville Mudflat Sculptures article on SFGate. I guess it’s a testimony to the enduring memory and allure of these mysterious “Landmarks”. Credit San Francisco Chronicle “Pop culture critic” writer Peter Hartlaub (whom I actually worked with at our college newspaper) for helping keep the memory alive by unearthing these twenty great photos from the Chronicle photo morgue.

There’s also a fascinating pic in the lower Gallery that details a 1970 bombing of an Emeryville Doggie Diner that was targeted at the Emeryville Police Department. Apparently the 70’s were some wild times in E’Ville! |  SFGate.com blog »
