Pix from the San Jose Modern Tour!

We had a great time getting back together with kindred MCM historian, Heather M. David, and checking out the cool buildings, signs, vintage goodies and cars. The self-guided driving tour of mid-century roadside highlights in San Jose was the first of its kind in the area and thoroughly researched by Heather.

If you didn't make it to the tour, take a look at my pix -- and if you haven't already, buy Heather's fabulous book, Mid-Century By the Bay! As Heather notes, "As development pressures continue into the 21st century, San Jose's mid-century buildings, signs, and roadside attractions are rapidly disappearing."
