Dusty Road

This picture was taken near Los Angelas in 1937. I like the sign.

  1. Is this the road that Charlie Chaplin used for the last scene in
    "Modern Times"? It looks very similar....

  2. Interesting question . . . I have not seen the movie in a while, but will pay attention next time I watch it. Thanks for your post.

  3. Probably the last thing these two guys needed to see. I would say they might be a bit down on their luck.

    What a contrast.

    Thanks for bringing these old pictures to our attention.

  4. Re: the road Chaplin used. This photograph has no mountains in the background, the last shot in Modern Times does (scroll to near the bottom):
