The end of Laws

After a weeks worth of postings I have reached the end of the pictures of Laws California. Here they are.


Many different printing presses on display.


An old Linotype machine. 


Assorted printing hardware.

And a last stop at the Post office.

They were closed and when they did it was the demise of Laws..

That is the tour of Laws California. If you are ever in the area of Bishop California don't miss Laws which is just 4 miles north of town.

Today is my last day at the Blake Ranch RV Park and tomorrow I'll be heading back to the Walmart in Kingman to stock up and then coming back in this direction to fuel up and a stop at the Blue Beacon Truck Wash in order to remove some of the top soil from Mel.

More thunder and lightning last night and .44 inches of rain made for a noisy night, but the sleeping was nice and cool. A fine way to enjoy the good life.

    1. Thank you. Mel will probably be a few pounds lighter once we remove the topsoil.

  4. I've really enjoyed seeing all your pictures of Laws!

    The old Linotype machine pictured in this blog really brought back some memories for me. I was a typesetter apprentice for 6 months back when I was just 19 and I used to have to melt all the lead slugs to make the bars (pigs) for those machines.

    Thankfully, I changed careers to computers.

    1. Thanks Rick, I really enjoyed showing every one what I saw. In grade school I picked up my papers for my route at the newspaper and used to go early so I could watch them paste up the paper. An interesting process.

  5. A great tour! Thank heavens for digital cameras. :c)

    Mel will probably pick up a few more MPG after that truck wash removes all that topsoil weight!

      Don't forget the carcasses of the suicidal bugs.
