We're having some fun with our Sacramento Bee Facebook timeline. Maybe you've had fun with it, too. Lots of people are sharing the links and leaving comments with their own memories. We hope you will, too.
You'll find a wonderful trove of milestones in Sacramento and world history at www.facebook.com/sacramentobee.
We've added key front pages of The Sacramento Bee since the first issue was published on Feb. 3, 1857 -- the stock market crash of 1929, the JFK assassination in 1963, Princess Diana's death in 1987 and lots more.
You'll also find photos from The Bee archives, including: hostages taken at the Good Guys store, 1991; the Kings' first game in Sacramento, 1985; deadly floods that killed 74 in Northern California, 1955; the opening of Tower Bridge, 1935.
Where were you on these key dates? What do you remember? What stories have you heard? We invite you to share your memories on our Facebook timeline.
I think you'll enjoy this walk back in time -- it's kind of addicting! Thanks go out to The Bee's Kevin Rolf and Pete Basofin for their work on this project. (Read the timeline post on Pete's Sac History Happenings blog.)
