Locke, California

In early April, my Mom and I drove down the “River Road” (CA 160) that parallels the Sacramento River between Sacramento and Antioch. Locke is a small town founded by Chinese in 1915 with a current population of about 80 (and only about 10 people of Chinese descent). The main street was built in 1920 and not much has been built (or even painted) since then. It’s on the National Register of Historic Places. I’ve post-processed these images to give them a time-worn and somewhat antique feel. 

By the way, if you’re ever in Locke at dinner time, stop by Al’s Place restaurant. Great steaks and a throwback atmosphere.
