San Jose in the 1970s

San Jose looked quite a bit different in the 1970s than it does today!  I came across an interesting website that shows dozens of interesting "then and now" pictures from 1975 and 2006.

My favorite is the fifth from the bottom.  Today, San Jose State University has a beautiful campus and I always enjoy being on it.  However in 1975 there were roads running through what are now the peaceful walkways that we enjoy today.

To see how San Francisco looked back then, I've watched some episodes of the 1970s police show, The Streets of San Francisco.  Check out this clip for a great car chase scene from that series.  They don't make car chase scenes like they used to!
