John McLaren Park can be seen ahead and to the right, while the top of Salesforce Tower, the tallest building in San Francisco, is barely visible on the left. This is a four-image panoramic photo.
THEN  This is a scene of Ocean View Park, as viewed approximately six to nine months after the earthquake of 18 April 1906. Governmental agencies provided the funds necessary to construct many small refugee shacks throughout San Francisco.
NOW  Here is a current view of Ocean View Park. 

Here is a view of downtown Oakland as seen from the West Oakland BART station.
