    Location #10 Grapes of Wrath appears to be US 66 inspection station Daggett CA. Santa Fe RR tracks and telegraph lines to the right are a clue. UP RR tracks from Yermo joined up there and on into Barstow and Cajon pass into LA. US 66 and US 91 from Las Vegas followed these tracks. It was modernized a few years later. Now of course I-40 and I-15 are there. Inspections too. But the Joads got across. Excellent site you got here,just found it.
