Scenes of Life in Bodie


This is one of the better if not best homes at Bodie.  I cannot help but to think it was staged nevertheless it was done so years ago.  Just look at that dust. 
All the rooms were wired off so people could not go inside.  That is why they look so undisturbed. 

My guess this was a child's bedroom complete with radio to lull the kid to sleep.

My dream kitchen in my dream house in the desert somewhere.

Silly tourists!  Throw some of that stuff my way if you don't want it.
Notice the sewing machine.

This is one of my favorite scenes I took that day in Bodie.
  I've always meant to get my pen and ink set out and draw this but...  

And Theresa of Round*A*Ranch, if you read the above, I know, I know.  You don't have to tell me.

That is a great impression of how people lived there.

Do tourists throw cash on the bed like a wishing well? I saw that and thought it was fake and staged because people used to hide money in the mattress, but then I saw your caption.

The chaise is really looking a bit worn. Not sure anyone could relax on that. Great photos again.

Wonderful captures of moments in time. The one of the kitchen was probably some woman's dream come true years ago.
