I have started adding my official Society for Industrial Archeology (SIA) events to a separate set of pages on this blog. If you look under the “SIA Events” tab at the top, you will see that I have posted a page dedicated to the 2008 SIA Conference, which was hosted in San Jose, CA.
I toured the Port of Oakland, the SS Red Oak Victory, the Rosie the Riveter Monument, and the remains of a Ford manufacturing plant. This was my first trip to California, so we did a little sight seeing along the coast as well. Overall, it was a fun conference.
