A vintage Sacramento.

6 Dec

Cordova Lodge, 1950’s U.S. 50, Sacramento, California (via)

Congress Inn (via)

Food Circus in Arden Fair.This place looks great! (via)

Holiday Inn. Apparently still around? (via)

Flagstone Motel. It makes Sacramento seem like some awesome dinky town in Southern California. (via)

Sacramento Inn, Arden Way. Concrete luxury. (via)

Stop’n’Shop. Guessed to be located around 28th and L. (via)

Before Pancake Circus, it was Al & Bud’s Platter. If you had an undercooked meal it’d be Al & Bud’s Splatters for you. (via)

Who has got some great ones? C’mon, I want to see some from the burbs.

    “Vintage Sacramento” Great photos. I ate at the Food Circus at Arden Fair many times as a kid. Looked just like the picture. Noisy, colorful, fun. Also, hung out at that pool at the Sacramento Inn when relatives came to visit … Hot concrete! Thanks for coming up with pictures that bring back fond memories!
