Sometimes all this talk of arenas and smart growth makes us yearn for a simpler time. The Vintage Sacramento Facebook page is the ideal place to indulge such nostalgia, circa the 1950s through 1970s. Curated by Will Peterson, a local graphic designer, this feed relives the city’s past with grainy, sepia-toned and Technicolor pics depicting the likes of K Street, the Sacramento Zoo, the Tower Bridge and the state Capitol. No fancy filters required here, although, incidentally, you’ll find these photos on Instagram, too, under the user name VintageSacto., R.L.
