Oakland's Dimond District bears the name of Hugh Dimond whose home was once located in present-day Dimond Park. The Altenheim looms on the horizon in this photo taken from "Prospect Hill" at the intersection of present-day Lincoln Avenue and MacArthur Boulevard. Fire destroyed the Altenheim's Queen Anne-style building in 1908.
