Taken near Ludlow, California along historic Route 66. Somehow I missed this one and decided to do it some justice by processing and posting it.

    Great photo Steve. I find it interesting that there use to be so much but aren’t anymore. Makes me wonder what when wrong for those people. Thanks so much for showing me what use to be.

  • Thanks, Dave, what went wrong was PROGESS. They started building multi-lane interstate super highways across from Chicago to L.A. putting a lot of people out of business.

    “Bagdadd( I can’t spell right) Cafe” type of sentiment.

  • Thanks, Tokiko, this isn’t Bagdad, somehow we missed that place along this section of Rte 66.
