Morning along Main Street in the ghost town of Darwin, California. The building beneath the telephone pole was The Outpost, which was built in the 1920′s. It was enlarged and converted into a cafe in 1929. The service station sold both unleaded gasoline and a special mixture for turbo powered engines. The building was also a United States Post Office. Today, Darwin is a ghost town with less than 50 residents.
