Richmond, California by bus (continued)

1. World War II Kaiser Shipyard #3 2. Watermelon truck 3. Former Ford Motor Company assembly building 4. Remnants of Oishi nursery 5. Remnants of Sakai nursery 6. Abandoned and de-signed Toys-R-Us (See the first 6 photographs.) 7. Richmond Village at BART, a new urbanist-styled development. Note the front porches (small town), flat fronts (urban), and parking courts (European mews). 8. "Tent city," one of many in protest of the high murder rate in Richmond. The domestic and vulnerable act of sleeping in urban public spaces at a time when these spaces are considered dangerous. (The photograph was taken while inside a moving bus.) 9. The new retail on 23rd tends to be "ethnic" retail.
