Where that Currie's was, is now the hipster restaurant/bar called Home. Though the railroad bridge is now long gone, you can still see remnants of its foundations on the hillside there.

Wow. I'm sure even back then that was considered a good price, no?

Great pics!

Here's what happened to Baby Jane. She didn't grow up-- she just grew OLD! She was waiting for that big day that her daddy said would come! That's what happened to Baby Jane.

The upstairs "Adam and Eve" bar at the Paris Inn
I love the devil chefs cooking the nude women and the large painting of the exotic island with flamingos.
Can you imagine what all this looked like in color!

Lost in perspective. The "then" photo appears to be shot from across the street, while the "now" google street view is, well, shot from the street, so being closer to the building, the building obscures the mountains. Not to mention the trees...

This is my favorite now and then. Thank you all for making the previous month so entertaining.
Not to mention catching the original Hartz Mountain flea collar... just, Wow.
