A written notation on the back of this aerial photo reads "New Walnut Creek bypass" The view from the south shows downtown Walnut Creek in a pocket enclosed on two sides by what is now Interstate 680 heading north from Danville at the bottom and veering right where what is now Hiway 24, coming in from the left, joins the interchange at left center. A dominant feature, a combined oval running track, baseball diamond, and football field, is south of downtown Walnut Creek. Orchards are present throughout. The completed freeways are designed to relieve commute traffic jams in Walnut Creek.
