In the 1050’s, Walter Blair established Blair’s Dairy at the corner of today’s Blair and El Cerrito Avenues, and his cattle grazed in pastures that ran to Grand Avenue. Blair’s Dairy supplied milk and butter to surrounding communities and San Francisco. Blair’s quarry, in today’s Dracena Park, supplied crushed rock to pave the dusty streets of Oakland and Piedmont.
