About This Walk

Join us as I lead my 9th Photowalk along the historic Richmond waterfront.

While frequently just thought of as the land between Berkeley and the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge, few newcomers to the Bay Area know the contribution Richmond made to the war effort in World War II with the construction of 747 ships, (with some being build in less than 5 days!), nor know how internment of Asian-Americans ripped apart families, many of whom were working in the shipyards, or remember the racial decriminalization against African-Americans during and after the war.

With a waterfront the offers stunning views of the Bay, a marina which always makes great photos of boats, and a waterfront which houses the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park, and a preserved WWII era Liberty ship across the channel, this walk is sure to have a little bit for everyone.

The walk will officially begin at 4:30, but I invite you to visit the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park center at 3:30pm  to gain a great appreciation of the area and the contribution women made to our victory in World War II. NOTE: The map doesn’t show the actual meeting place accurately.  We will meet at the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park.

Afterwards, we’ll dine at El Tunel, a Mexican restaurant, located at 199 Park Pl, Pt. Richmond around 7:00 For  directions, go to https://goo.gl/ivMGku

Have kids?  Bring them along!  You’re never too young to photograph, and this year, there’s a special Youth Photo Contest designed for walkers 16 years or younger.

If you have questions, please call me at reid at lumiograph.com
