About: oakland, california
Oakland's initial growth came from using hillside oak and redwood timber to build San Francisco. After the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, many San Franciscans headed to Oakland and a great number of Oakland's homes were built during the 1910s and 1920s. During the late twentieth century, a steady flood of immigrants from around the globe came into Oakland, and it is now known as one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the U.S.
