Quillz:
Very interesting. I still think white-on-black guide signs are more legible than white-on-green, regardless of what research might have shown. Miss all the cutout shields, too. (I hate the '70-spec cutouts currently being used.)

hm insulators:
What freeway is that in the fourth picture down? They don't identify it, but I'm guessing it's the I-710 (long before it was renamed I-710).

Looks to be around today's 10/710 junction.

Interstate Trav:
The Fourth one down looks like the I-710 near Bandini Blvd.  the very bottom one is the 10 east, and it's amazing how busy the freeway was back then, and it was already 4 lanes going eastbound.
