Weekend assignment: Past and present
450 C Street, Fresno, California
- zdan, CNN iReport producer
I grew up in Fresno, California as did my father and his family lived for many years in this house on 450 C Street.
Over the years the neighborhood has changed drastically, as neighborhoods do, unfortunately. Most of the houses have been demolished and the area has been left with empty lots and is no longer "family friendly."
On a recent visit i decided to find the house to see if it was stil there and snapped this photo. I dug out a couple old snapshots that my father had stowed away in a box and superimposed them onto this photo.
The photo on the right is my father's sister, Claudine sometime in 1940's. I seem to remember her telling me that she made the suit that she is wearing. The picture on the left is the family group a few years earlier.
Many things have changed but amazingly, the house seems pretty much intact.
