Jenny Rose Restaurant

35555 Ghost Town Rd Yermo, CA 92398

You gotta love roadside signs, and the architecture of the buildings they advertise. In Yermo California, on the way to Calico Ghost Town, is the Jenny Rose Restaurant. The place is typical of the coffee shop/dinner that once ran along California's highways. Long before all of the big chains took over, these places fed hungry travellers on their way to places like Calico. This sign is a great example of the few independent restaurants that are left.

The restaurant itself. That banner seems to have out used its usefulness. I'm not a big fan of banners on the side of restaurants. They detract from the beauty of the classic architecture.

In case you didn't understand that the Jenny Rose served food, this sign shows the international symbol for "grub served here".

A close up of the sign shows the damage that time has done to to it. It's sad really.
