Mare Island Photographs, Vallejo, California

These photographs were made on a group visit in 2004. Things have changed a lot in the past 18 years, and the locations for about half the images no longer exist. The building at 235 Railroad Ave is still there, as is the gantry.

The thumbnails below are not necessarily the full image. Select any one for a full frame slide show.
