I'll bet the modern view really suffers compared to this pic! :-(

And here is what it looks like today.



OK. Maybe not Today. :-)

Richard I know that as we progress through the years some gaps may appear in our memory but I think that was about 57 years ago!
But doesn’t that seem like yesterday?

Postcard from 1954 ? I think there are no newer cars in the picture. I wonder how much change in the past 63 years ? That interval is longer than between the pictures posted !

My mind is still in a 50's 60's mode. When youngsters ask if I'm the guy with the old pickup I always think they mean the C-cab not the '65. When Elwood P. Dowd said "I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I'm happy to state I finally won out over it" he was certainly justified.

Try this one on. :-)

Neat !! Going back another 10-12 years ? Not much change at all. I'm still sore they remodeled the "Rialto" when they changed the name of the movie house to "Ute". Oh well.
(Now i'm almost scared to see what this view looks like today!)

You're not going to like it . . .

You're right, I don't. Sigh. I miss the old days.

The mountains have changed too.

The beautiful building at the end of the street is gone now, that's for sure. :-(

It looks to me like the modern view needs to move forward a few blocks to get the same perspective as the older pictures.

Looks like the same building in the middle way at the end of the street.

The beautiful building at the end of the street is the Antlers Hotel. "The first Antlers Hotel was built in 1883 and burned down in 1898.
The second Antlers Hotel, completed in 1901, was torn down in 1964."
Sad what we are seeing is some modern thing built at the turn of the centry. :-) :-)

Just think, they'll be pining for the view in that last picture 100 years from now on the antique Toyota Corolla forum!

Fred - the mountains haven't changed. The old pictures are through what appears to be a medium telephoto lens. Google StreetView uses wide angle lenses. It's nearly impossible to get the same perspective.
