West Valley City, 1969

Some interesting photographs were discovered while processing records received from Salt Lake County Planning and Development.  They show a few roads in West Valley City as they used to look 48 years ago.

Below, the photographer is facing west along 4700 South from approximately 5400 West in 1969.  For those familiar with this area, you will notice the red and white water tower in the distance that still stands today.

And in the image below, we are standing in 4700 South and looking north along 5400 West in 1969.  No dog would be safe standing in the middle of 5400 West today (let alone a person even trying to cross an extremely busy 4700 South).
