Seacliff Beach State Park with the cement ship, the Palo Alto, in the background. The Palo Alto was designed as an oil tanker (built with Davenport cement) and was to be part of a U.S. cement fleet built in 1918-1919. The ship never went to sea until January 22, 1930, when it was towed from San Francisco to Seacliff Beach.
