This image from the City of Mountain View Public Library Catalog shows the intersection of Middlefield and Whisman Road circa 1962. Beyond the intersection, behind the gas station sign on the right, is a glimpse of the gable roof of Walker's Wagon Wheel restaurant.
The following text is from the Library site "This watering hole was famous as a meeting ground for the young engineers from such businesses as Fairchild Semiconductor and Raytheon Company. Between 1963 and 1964, Middlefield Road was expanded and extended to Moffett Blvd. In this photograph, these improvements have not yet happened."
