17 Photos Of What California Used To Look Like In The 60’s.

I always love looking at old photos of places I’m very familiar with in the present day: places I lived, places I visit often… It’s like I get to share a unique bond with the people who lived there long ago, because to them, that place is also familiar, just like it is to me.

Here is what California used to look like in the 1960’s… enjoy!
