The Corner of Redwood and DeLong

 

Anna Morrison recalls when the corner of Redwood and DeLong was mostly an empty field. It was used for outdoor gatherings in dry months, but was regularly flooded in winter and spring. She fondly remembers watching donkey baseball being played there (more about donkey baseball another time), as well as regular baseball and softball. (Anna, who is 94, has been living in Novato since 1923.)
