The year is 1912. ‘Horseless Carriages’ cruise onto a boardwalk along Southern California’s now famous surfin’ spot, “Rincon”. Today, Amtrak commuter trains hug the coastline, and the Ventura Freeway aka Route 101 winds it’s way along those very same cliffs.

This scene is located between Ventura and Santa Barbara – a 10 minute drive from American Photo’s studio. Another popular surf spot, “Surfers Point”, is just a couple miles south of The Rincon. From the studio window today, the sky outside looks identical to the colorized photo.

One thought on “CALIFORNIA’S “RINCON” (1912)

  1. California sunbathes close to the sea
    and does not know the summer of the sea
    California is a border between sea and earth
    The desert and the life …

    The paltuviers are sleeping under the wind
    The tawny cinnamon embalms your time …

    Near the orange trees
    It is there that waits for you
    At the bottom of your dreams
    Your prince charming …

    But California is so much near here
    that by closing your eyes
    you could see her
    of the bottom of your bed …

    According to the lyrics of ” La Californie ” interpreted by Julien Clerc
