Bodie Hotel cont.

 That is a nice service to have at a hotel.

Just imagine...

I wonder if they were in the middle of some remodeling 
then just decided to close up the business for good and walked away from it.

So this was the best to be had in Bodie when you stepped down out from the stagecoach 
after a long hot dusty day of traveling to get here.


  1. That last photo is like a western movie, I can see the horses and the cowboys coming along.

  2. What an awesome capture, John. That switchboard is a real treasure. Our grandkids could never imagine.

  3. better than nothing and probably welcomed after a hard trek.

  4. It is like time has been frozen!

  5. Imagine providing meals at all hours back then! Of course a meal was probably beans and bread.

  6. Love the old switch board! No wonder dial up internet used to be slow!!!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  7. I get the feeling that the townspeople just suddenly got up and moved on.
