Whether it is called San Ramon Valley Road, Danville Blvd., North Main Street or even Contra Costa Blvd., it was for a long time Highway 21.  And between the 1930s and the 1960s, it was the only way to go north and south through the San Ramon and Amador Valleys.  Steve talks about the “only road through town” and how it shaped farm life, regional business and eventually the suburbs.
