Changes to Fresno High campus look good (photo update)

I wasn’t familiar with Fresno High until P de Q opened a couple of years ago across the street. They’re a bakery that makes delicious Brazilian cheese bread, or Pao de Queijo. Aside from enjoying delicious bread, visiting the bakery introduced me to Fresno High, which has a beautiful main building. I also noticed major construction underway.

The project involved blowing up two bunker buildings, that ruin the architecture, and build new ones off to the side in a complementary architectural style. The bunkers used to block the view of the historic building. Click to read more!

New Google satellite imagery for Fresno! (Spring 2013)

Some parts of the country, including major cities like Boston, only get updated satellite imagery from Google every 3 or so years.

For Fresno, it’s never more than a year before we get the freshest pictures. The latest update, rolled out last week, shows Fresno and the surrounding area as of March 15, 2013.

The previous update, pushed out November of 2012, featured images from August 26, 2012. I did a photo summary of that as well.

That’s less than 7 months between updates! Older images are still accessible via the history slider in Google Earth.  Click to read more!

Fresno High construction pictures

Right before Christmas, I set out to buy three dozen Pão de Queijos (Brazilian cheese bread) to make for the family, and bought some at P*de*Q on Echo Ave (where else?). The store is located across from Fresno High, so I obviously noticed some major construction going on.  (The store is just around the corner from the Dusty Buns retail location by the way, both are highly recommended).

Fresno High is home to a beautiful older building (Royce Hall) that actually looks like what I would imagine a decent high school to be. It’s elegant, and the campus is dense. Just look at this thing, I can hear the ringing school bell in my head just from the picture. Click to read more!
