Last week’s Remember When mystery photo, top left, showed Don Simpson, at left, chairman of the Tracy Economic Development Committee, with three officials from Yellow Freight Systems. They were viewing progress on the firm’s regional bulk-break facility on Pescadero Road in northwest Tracy in January 1991.

In the photo with Simpson are, left to right, Gary Norris and Michael Pollard, facility designers, and Nile Glasebrook, Yellow vice president for properties.

The firm from Overland Park, Kan., opened the terminal in the fall of 1991. The $20 million facility had a 159-door transfer dock, a three-level office building and buildings for tractor and trailer maintenance. With the merger of Roadway into Yellow, it now carries the YRC label.

Today’s photo, below left, shows a Tracy couple celebrating a family landmark in July 1966. Who are they and what was the occasion?
