1912, San Jose CA. Today, Silicon Valley is technology but we used to be "The Valley of Heart's Delight", where orchards and farms flourished and Del Monte and Sunsweet started.

A real man cooks, takes out the trash, helps clean up the house, helps take care of his kids if he has any, helps provide on the bills & when he has a lady he spoils her with full commitment, honesty, loyalty, faithfulness, affection, listening, understanding, attention & unconditional love.

My grandparents move to the valley about 10 years after this was taken. It was beautifu, with orchards everywhere. My mom and her siblings picked 'cots to earn a little money. Even when I grew up in the 60's there were still many orchards to see. It's a shame all that fertile soil is covered with cement.

In 1912, there were about 21,000 people in San Jose. Now, there are around a million. And, of course, that doesn't count all of the surrounding '"small" communities that have now grown . . . and grown . . .

Almost all of the people in the Valley are from somewhere else. To be a 2nd or 3rd (let alone 4th!) generation native is very rare indeed.

I know, it is really crazy. My mom grew up in Mayfield. It was just south of Palo Alto and was eventually annexed into PA. I grew up in PA proper. It was a lovely little city, at one time. I left for the mountains. Couldn't stand the Bay Area crowds and traffic.

I recall Prune orchards back in the early 1960s in San Jose. The area was also big on dairy farming.
