During a lull in a hell-bent news day Wednesday we were pleased to get some reader-submitted photos which rather nicely illustrated the changes that have come to our valleys in a short half decade.
Reader Tom Andersen submitted the photo of Diablo Road just east of Saddleback and taken in 1980 with a wistful, “anyone remember this?” message. Another NEWS24-680 reader, Charles Hathaway of San Ramon, was apparently close by or raced to the very spot Tom shot his pictures and took another – time warping us 35 years into the past.
Thank you, gentlemen! And, yes, Charles… your cap is on its way!
