Here's a view from one of the parade cars in one of the early runnings of the Bunnies and Bonnets parade in Downtown Campbell. It was taken in 2001 and was probably captured using an early digital camera/video recorder. It's really grainy, but you can get an idea of how much Downtown Campbell has changed. There's no "Schrader Building" that is currently home to The Socialight - Restaurant and the building that would open as Stoddard's Brewpub and would later become home to Campbell Brewing Company (once and then again) is still under construction. The retail block across from that building is still an empty lot.

The 8-bit version of Sally Howe walks into the video to take a photo at around 1:42.
