A trip back into the Victorian Age as it was lived in the then very priviledged Oakland/Berkeley/Alameda side of the San Francisco Bay Area where Victorian domestic architecture reached its most luxuriant flowering. Represented here are the great mansions and estates, the modest residences and cottages, the public and commercial structures - some monumental, some distinguished, some merely curious. Also includes the people and events that filled the buildings in the era.
