Throwback Thursday – Two Views Of Diablo Road, 35 Years Apart

Two views of Diablo Road - 35 years apart. Photos: Tom Andersen, 1980 - Charles Hathaway, 2015

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!

  1. I have to disagree with the premise of the opposing photographs. I was around in 1980, and the sky was bluer then and certainly in better focus than today!

    • Some of us were around back then, too, David. The Oldies around here remember covered wagons and buffalo on those hills…
