Tooele Transcript Bulletin – News in Tooele, Utah

September 20, 2018
Then and Now

The more things change the more they stay the same is a common saying but a look back at our archives shows there’s a lot in Tooele County that that has changed and you can’t look back and say things here have stayed the same. 

Five of the eight archive photos show places that have changed dramatically. A gas station’s prices on the corner of Main Street and 100 South in Tooele. The gas prices have jumped from 89 cents a gallon to over $3. The gas station is no longer there and the property now houses the Tooele County Emergency Management Center. 

So take a look back with us with a few photos from1962, 1971 and 1986 to take a trip down memory lane or maybe see the way things used to be for the first time.
