The photo above is from the RTD photo archives with the caption, “In June 1969, drivers navigated a flooded Westover Hills Boulevard in South Richmond after heavy rainfall”. More like Wetover Hills Boulevard am I, right? I’ll see myself out.

Shoutout to the Volkswagen that drove by when I was taking this shot and almost in the exact spot of the Volkswagon in 1969. I could not have planned it better.
