This is a view of the traveler’s rest stop called Baxter’s Station, which once existed here in Placer County, California. It evolved into the unincorporated community of Baxter, and the rest stop closed.
The description states:
C342 – Baxter’s Station among the pines, Baxter, California, on transcontinental Highway 40.
–Highway 40 was upgraded to Interstate status and renamed Interstate 80. Some of the establishments, like this one, were bypassed by the new road course. An exit was built to allow access to the rest stop, but it has closed.
The cars visible in the picture indicate this card is likely from the 1940s.
