El Cerrito: Your West County vintage image of the week

A promotional ad from March 23, 1934 for the El Cerrito Kennel Club, better known as the greyhound track , once situated where El Cerrito Plaza now stands. The heated clubhouse was added in the track’s second year of operation. No details are available on who won this highly touted race (aka “THE SENSATION OF THE AGE”) between entrants who had been around, traveling to New York and other locales.
