OAKLAND POPULATION: 1,543

Apr 13: 1st Pony Express, which basically followed modern-day
Interstate 80, reached Sacramento, Calif.

Apr 23: Ten days later, the Pony Express rider missed the boat at Benicia, Ca. Thomas Bedford, a 34-year-old stable keeper, was hired on the spot and boarded the
Carquinez ferry with his horse. His discovered that his horse had lost a shoe,
so he borrowed a horse from Martinez blacksmith Casemoro Briones and eventually
delivered the mailto the Oakland ferry. The mail reached SF 9 hours and 15 minutes
from the time it left Sacramento. Today this drive takes about two hours.

For all of its fame, the Pony Express as an enterprise lasted only 18 months.
With stories like this one, it's surprising they lasted that long.

system started in downtown Oakland before it eventually moved to
Berkeley. Is the wheat-grass greener on the other side, UC?

OAKLAND POPULATION: 34,456.


Jan 1:
The building of the Panama Canal was symbolically begun under the
direction of French diplomat Ferdinand de Lesseps.

Jan 27:

Two centuries later, twenty-seven year olds from Portland to Berkeley will
scramble to adorn their apartments with bulbs that look just like his.

Oct 1:
John Philip Sousa became the new director of US Marine Corps Band.

Oct 5:
The first ball-point pen was patented on this day by Alonzo T. Cross.
