20 Years Ago on June 21, 1999 -- Serving Up Wimbledon, Stock Tools, and AOL Hometown

June 21, 1999: Tennis wasn't a big performer for us, but for some reason, we led (at least for a little bit) with news from Wimbledon, which kicked off today. (That's Martina Hingis, right?)
For a mid-morning update, we went to a generic Wall Street lineup, with market news, stock portfolio, and top stocks. (And of course we still had the Stock Quote lookup box in the top block.)
For the PM update, we went with the good old purple and gold AOL Hometown promo:
[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
