Do you remember the short-lived McDonalds Express restaurant on Sherman Avenue in days gone by. The Eagles building, I believe, separated it from Hudson's hamburgers. Obviously, Hudson's continues to make great hamburgers while McDonalds closed shop fairly quickly. SR photog buddy Jesse Tinsley has posted his first "then-and-now" slide show for Coeur d'Alene. Many of you know that Jesse worked in North Idaho for several years before being assigned to the downtown Spokane office. Jesse says he plans to compile then-and-now shows periodically, as he gets to Coeur d'Alene to shoot updates. Quoth: "Because I have been at the paper for over 20 years now, it seemed like a good idea to go back and back and pull some photos and update them." Check out what took McDonalds place.
- Also: SR staff compiled a then-and-now slide show featuring the aftermath of the tsunami catastrophe in Japan to the tornado destruction in Alabama and other southern states here.
