Finally an easy one!

Besides the roads and some power poles, only one man-made structure in this photo still exists today (and it's not the overhead interstate sign at the exit, that sign has been replaced by an overhead sign just before where the offramp begins, up near where the Richfield gas station was).

This looks mid to late 1960s to me, a few late 50s model cars, but not so many as to make me think early 60s.

Haha.. an easy one! Maybe for you! There's some really interesting history behind this photo! When someone guesses it, I'll share a few links.

Yes it is easy...........Dixon, CA is all I will say.......one major place closed in 1987

Apparently, one of the buildings instead of being demolished was dismantled and is being stored in a warehouse! I didn't know you could store buildings in buildings.

Randy, it looks like your comments were going to spam! I fixed it though and you're the winner! Great job!

The only thing left standing from this photo is the Milk Farm sign.

The Milk Farm Restaurant (and the sign) was considered a cultural landmark in Dixon; so, even though the restaurant went out of business in 1986, the building remained until 2000, when it was dismantled and placed in storage in hopes of someone being able to reconstruct it on another site some day. Because of the passion of the residents of Dixon, the sign, however, still remains!

As of the latest Google Earth imagery (2009), nothing has been built on this site. So the unsuspecting traveler pulls off and finds nothing but a field of dirt and brush underneath the Milk Farm sign (a row of trees hide this nothingness from the interstate).

BTW, the big white building, with the lookout tower on top, was the Milk Farm Restaurant. The building at the foot of the Milk Farm sign was a Union 76 gas station.

There's no denying the importance of China.Take a look at McKinsey's map showing the rapid shift in the world's economic center of gravity. Beginning in AD 1, for nearly 2,000 years, the economic center of gravity was in Asia because population growth and migration were slow. Industrialization and urbanization in Europe and the U.S. quickly shifted the economic power west for the next century. Now, "China is urbanizing on 100 times the scale of Britain in the 18th century and at more than ten times the speed," says McKinsey.

Then, 144 women report rape to police every day – that is six cases reported every hour.” Not because the Defence Force was white (which it was) but because toilet paper was scarce, perverse interest,prevalent?What I am saying is that irresponsibility is often encouraged by the general belief systems which stem from the notion of a God who will solve all the world’s problems someday. it will be arranged.

Like Italy, Turkey strictly, the Ottoman Empire was also non-aligned by August 1914. But her historic enmity with Russia inclined her towards the Central Powers. From 1913, in the aftermath of two Balkans wars, a German military mission under Gen Liman von Sanders had been re-organising the Turkish army.

“Syam,” aku memanggilnya dengan lembut. Lama kami bertentangan mata. Namun aku selalu tewas. Bagi menghilangkan resah, aku kembali bangun dan berdiri menghadap laut. Dia pun ikut sama. Malam semakin larut, tiba-tiba aku rasa sebak. Aku tidak tahu kenapa , tetapi itu yang aku rasa.
