Another View of The Station Today

Chambless is on the 1931-1973 alignment of Route 66. This building was originally Chambless Camp, built in 1932 by James Chambless. The Camp had a garage, a large canopy out front over the entrance and gas pumps, and cabins. The building was still used in 1993 as the Chambless Market and Gas run by Gus Lizalde (see: Guide to Historic Route 66 in California by Davies and Kuna, 1993, p. 8) July 31, 2005.

The Frasher Post Card Collection - 1949

Between 1920 and 1940, Frasher Fotos closely paralleled the rise of motor culture within the western United States. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, tourist travel was accomplished by rail and guided excursions, but by the mid-1920s automobiles became the preferred means of transportation. Frasher was an enthusiastic advocate of car travel. He enjoyed the freedom that the automobile offered for exploring the mountain and desert regions of California.
