9780738581705: Italian Oakland (Images of America Series)

Oakland, the other city by the bay, was a magnet for Italian immigrants in the early decades of the 20th century. Some relocated from San Francisco after the devastating 1906 earthquake and fire; many more came to Oakland predominantly from Italy’s northern regions of Piedmont, Liguria, and Lombardy in search of opportunity and prosperity. These pioneers worked hard, typically at backbreaking labor, to build new lives. They raised a generation of children who succeeded in their own right and contributed in various ways to their community and nation. As they established new roots and adopted new ways, congregating largely in north Oakland’s vibrant and bustling Temescal neighborhood, these Italian Americans also nurtured their Old Country customs and traditions―many of which, along with rare glimpses of bygone days, are portrayed in this charming trip through time.

About the Author:

Author Rick Malaspina was a reporter and columnist for the Oakland Tribune and the San Francisco Examiner daily newspapers. His grandparents settled in San Francisco in the late 1800s after emigrating from northern Italy. A resident of Oakland, he personally gathered the images and information in this collection mainly from local individuals and families who, like him, proudly cherish their Italian American heritage.
