Here is another photograph in downtown Modesto California … this one is looking from the opposite direction as the photo in the previous post.  I cannot get over all of the hits that I have had to this site from the previous photo that I posted of downtown Modesto in the 1950’s.  I even had a nice comment from a girl explaining what was in the previous photograph.  I have run across several images from this trip that my dad made in California from this trip that I will work up and post later.  As usual, thanks for looking and all comments are welcome …

Modesto, CA in the 1950’s …

with 12 comments

This image is one of downtown Modesto, CA in the 1950’s that my father made on one of his trips out west to visit his sister.  I know nothing about Modesto and have never been there myself, so I do not have any information about this photograph.  Modesto looked to be a fairly thriving town during this era … WW II having been over for ten years or so and all the soldiers returning home looking to start families and buying homes.  This being California, I am sure that there must have been defense contractors in this area that added to the local economy … maybe even a military base or two, they seem to be all over California.  Anyone that has anything to offer about Modesto, please feel free to post … this image is one that I had posted on the old site also.  Thanks for looking …
