Sometime in the mid 1970’s, I recall seeing a body of work by a photographer of the Sacramento Delta area. The work inspired me to start my own work on another part of the Sacramento Valley. I started my work in the mid 1980’s, and shelved the project after a couple of trips to the region. I have dozens of scanned negatives, and perhaps I will become inspired to complete the work.
I took this photograph while I was returning from Joshua Tree National Park. I had photographed in Williams twenty years ago, and I figured that there were still photographic opportunities there. I think I was correct.
I do not know anything about this structure other than the clues from the signage. I suspect it is condemned, but as to its fate, I can only speculate.
