Mount Hamilton Road in 1940

Start of Mt. Hamilton Road in 1940, looking west.


Santa Clara Valley in 1940 still retained its rural character. In a decade all that would change.

Here’s what it looked like from Mt. Hamilton Road looking west. Alum Rock Avenue intersection is just to the right at a hard-to-see stop sign. (Click on image for full size.)
