    Fernside: The Story of a Neighborhood
    Presented by Woody Minor
    A sequel to last year’s and a tie-in to this year’s Woody Walk, the August lecture will cover the history and architecture of Alameda’s foremost residential tract of the early 20th century. Beginning with an overview of Fernside’s origin as the private estate
    of railroad magnate A. A. Cohen, we will see how his heirs worked with an Oakland bank to develop the estate as the city’s largest single subdivision. The tract’s rich architectural legacy, from Tudor to Spanish to Ranch, will be amply illustrated with a focus on notable architects and builders, highlighting residential design in the after- math of the bungalow. Sponsor: Peter Fletcher, Broker, Windermere Real Estate.
