After, before on Mountain Avenue

Plenty of times when something has changed around the valley I’ve wished I had a photo of the “before” look for comparison’s sake. In this case, finally, I do: the landscaping on the median island on Mountain Avenue just above the 10 Freeway.

Above is the new photo, shot last week, after the landscaping was redone. Below is a photo shot in December that includes the old shrubs and trees.

I don’t have one with the old city monument, the one with the U logo, but you can’t have everything.

  • We all need to go to 5th and Mountain and take pictures. We’ve already missed the demolition of the old buildings…

    [I’m still surprised nobody thought to alert the newspaper that the buildings on the future Wal-Mart site were coming down. Surely thousands of people drove by that day. Sigh. — DA]

    Walmart is moving from the location on Foothill?

    [No, it’s just a new store. — DA]
